Gandhi-giri saves Sanjay Dutt (for now)
It seems like Gandhi-giri has managed to save actor Sanjay Dutt from landing-up behind bars, well atleast for the time being.
Dutt along with 25 other accused in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case appeared before the TADA court today. The actor is charged with possessing an AK-56 rifle and destroying it with the help of friends. He has already served 18 months in prison in connection with the charges against him.
Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt appeared before a TADA court on Wednesday in response to summons issued to him.
The summons were issued by designated Judge P D Kode, who had asked Dutt and 25 other accused to appear before him for giving their attendance on Wednesday.
The court is giving the verdict in phases and has exempted accused on bail, including Dutt, from personal appearance. However, they are summoned to the court periodically.
The court has so far not declared when it would give the verdict on the alleged complicity of Sanjay and a group of his friends who helped him in destroying the weapon.
Outside the court, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told reporters that the verdict on Dutt is expected after Diwali holidays.
And as always, members of Bollywood Industry have stepped forward to show their support for the man; who they claim would never to anything to harm his own country’s sovereignty.
All I can say is that with his political connections, father’s good-will and Bollywood Industry’s influence, it seems highly un-likely that he would be severely punished. But then I could be completely wrong.
