Sanjay Dutt back in Prison
Sanjay Dutt has been found guilty of possessing an AK-56 rifle and a 9mm pistol under India’s Arms Act. Whole morning I have been keeping a tab via on-line news regarding Dutt Jr. court appearance today. To tell you the truth with the success of his recent films, regular television interviews and numerous rounds of holy places – I actually believed that he would be let-off by the Indian courts.
Just like me, I am sure there are many others who would have surely been shocked on hearing this court verdict. Though he was acquitted of more serious conspiracy charges, Sanjay could still face upto maximum 5 years in prison for the charges he has been found guilty off.
Obviously the judge’s ruling did not go down with the accused and his family.
Dutt was in court to hear Tuesday’s verdict and looked agitated as the judge delivered his verdict.
Dressed in a grey and red-checked shirt and jeans with a vermillion mark on his forehead, the actor told the judge: “I am the only earning member of the family.”
He was ordered to stop speaking and to remain in court. All accused pronounced guilty are immediately taken into police custody.
Judge PD Kode said the actor was guilty of illegally possessing weapons that had been given to him by some of the men accused of carrying out the bomb attacks, but he added: “I’ve not found him to be a terrorist or destructor.”
