Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt to be sent to jail for 5 yrs?


Sanjay Dutt
Mumbai/New Delhi, Aug 23: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt may face a real legal trouble once again. Dutt, on whom the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) holds circumstantial evidences of his involvement in 1993 Mumbai blasts, may face imprisonment for five years if the Supreme Court accepts the demand of CBI.

The CBI on Thursday, Aug 23 urged the Supreme Court to uphold Dutt's conviction in connection with the 1993 Bombay blasts. The agency also asked to uphold the verdict of the Bombay High Court which earlier had pronounced six-years imprisonment for the actor.

A special TADA court in Mumbai in 2006 held him guilty under the Arms Act for possessing a weapon illegally, though acquitted him from other TADA charges.

After spending one year in the prison, Dutt got bail after challenging the Bombay High Court's verdict in connection with his conviction in the serial bomb blasts case.

Recently, the actor admitted in the apex court that he once had dinner at Dawood Ibrahim's house in Dubai but denied any friendship with the underworld don. Dawood is one of the main accused in the serial blasts case which were carried out in 1993 as the aftermath of Babri Masjid demolition in 1992.
