Sanjay Dutt may have to surrender on September 27


Sanjay Dutt recently received a sentence of six years rigorous imprisonment under the Arms and Ammunition Act. He was in prison for 23 days when he received bail from the Supreme Court based on a technicality. Sanjay along with five other 1993 blasts accused have been given bail as they had not yet received a copy of the judgment from the Tada Court. It is being said that Sanju baba will receive a copy of his judgment by September 27 and he will have to immediately surrender before the police once again. Later he can reapply for fresh bail.
Despite the temporary bail that Sanju has received , he and his family seem extremely relieved for the temporary respite. Moreover Sanju was able to come home for the special occasion of rakshabandhan as well as his sister Priya Dutt’s birthday. So Sanju will get a month long break from prison till he has to go back into confinement. All the convicts including Sanjay will get their judgment copies in the order in which they were sentenced. Sanju was one of the last few to be sentenced along with his good friend Yusuf Nullwala and hence to his good luck this will enable him to spend some more time with his family. Recently Sanju was embroiled in a new controversy when the Deputy Chief Minister ordered a probe and even suspended police officers and constables for hugging and shaking hands with a convict (Sanjay Dutt) while he was leaving prison after getting bail. Later however the Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh revoked the suspension and probe against the police officers as it was claimed that it was an extremely humane gesture on their part.

Sanjay has also begun to make a few public appearances after a few days of rest, but he is mostly seen attending poojas at holy shrines. Recently director and good friend Sanjay Gupta kept a small pooja for Dutt at his home. Some of Sanju’s bollywood friends were also present at the pooja to pray for Sanju. Sanju participated in the aarti and performed many of the rituals at the pooja. Sanju also visited the Shirdi temple today along with girlfriend Maanyata. The duo along with Sanju’s family entered the temple premises through the VIP area and performed a ritualistic pooja. There was some issue of Sanju entering through the VIP entrance and holding up other common devotees which was later sorted out by the trustees from the temple. So Sanju seems to be spending his free time trying to appease the gods and pray for strength to face the future troubles.
