A day Sanjay Dutt wont forget so easily, Tuesday, 31st July, 2007, a date with Justice, a day when his past caught up with him, a day of regrets, a day of pleas falling on deaf ears.

Even the skies recognizing the mood of the moment was all grey and overcast, almost as an indication of the verdict to come. Accused No. 117, Sanjay Dutt, was ready for his tryst with destiny, as he left his Pali Hill residence to go to the TADA Court. The mood was poignant, sombre, as his sisters met him that last time before he left to court. Rest, as they say, is now history. Sanjay Dutt has been convicted by the TADA court for possessing fire arms and ammunition and other offenses, and has been sentenced to 6 years Rigorous Imprisonment. On hearing the sentence, Sanjay Dutt broke down and pleaded with the court to give him time to surrender, as he had not come prepared to go to jail. Unfortunately, the law did not give powers to the Judge to grant him this concession. Earlier, Sanjay Dutt's application for probation was also rejected on grounds that he was a mature adult of 33 at the time of commission of offence and was fully aware of the gravity of the situation and the consequences thereof.

Respite, if any, will only be if the Supreme Court finds any merit in the Appeal which his lawyers are likely to file. Will the Supreme Court reduce his sentence? Keep watching this space for more news!

Mamta Singh @Piku_S 16 years ago Poor Sanju Baba he is the great actor, Bollywood will be nothing after him. The court should give him a break, why are they after the great actors like Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan. 6 years is not a justice for something that happened 13years ago, why cant he pay a fine.
