Supreme Court extends deadline for Sanjay Dutt to surrender

Actor Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for his involvement in the Mumbai bomb blast in 1993.  Sanjay Dutt has already undergone sentence of 18 months.  Supreme Court has issued order that he needs to undergo the remaining years of imprisonment and that he should present himself in the court on April 18th. 


In a development, Sanjay Dutt filed petition in High Court requesting that deadline for him to surrender be extended as he needs to complete movie schedules in hand.  In the petition, he made request that the deadline by extended to another 6 months. 

The petition came for hearing in presence of magistrates as Sadhasivam and Chauhan.  Sanjay Dutt’s lawyer argued: -
 ‘Sanjay Dutt is into movies being taken at budget of Rs 270 crores.  So, the deadline for Sanjay Dutt to surrender should be extended to another 6 months’. 

The government’s lawyer argued against the request made by Sanjay Dutt in the petition.  


‘The petition by another three who were involved in Mumbai bomb blast has been rejected.  So, if time is given for Sanjay Dutt to surrender, it would prove a wrong example’, argued government’s lawyer.  

The magistrates, who heard arguments by both sides, raised question as to whether a person who is to undergo sentence should accept movies.  But, taking into account Sanjay Dutt’s commitment to movie schedules, magistrates extended the deadline for him to surrender to another four weeks.
