Gangster Abu Salem sends legal notice to makers of 'Sanju' movie
Mumbai, July 27: Gangster Abu Salem sends legal notice to makers of 'Sanju' movie, seeking publication of contradiction to the wrong information about him in the movie and an apology.
The notice sent through advocate Prashant Pandey stated that the film depicted and stated erroneous information on Salem.
The notice claimed that Salem was not involved in supplying arms and ammunition to Dutt, which can be justified by evidence of approvers in the
blasts case. The notice claimed that Salem never met Dutt. It further stated that the film contents were "extremely insinuating, disparaging and
defamatory attacking the reputation of Salem".
The Notice also stated that if makers of the movie fail to do so in 15 days, he will file a defamation case against them.
"The scene where Ranbir Kapoor (pictured as Sanjay Dutt) gives a confessional statement about possession of arms and ammunition during communal tension around our country in 1993,'' it read.
Salem is in jail, serving a life sentence, after being convicted for his role in the 1993 Bombay blasts case.
