MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt who has just about a week to surrender himself according to the Supreme Court verdict in relation to the ’93 serial blasts, recently visited the Baba Shahbuddin and Baba Moinuddin Mazars in Neemuch, Bhopal.
A few days ago the convicted actor also offered prayers at a temple in Madhya Pradesh. Sanjay Dutt along with his brother-in-law Kumar Gaurav offered prayers at a temple in Guna. He even went for a darshan at the Devi Peeth Temple in Datia district.
On March 21, the Supreme Court upheld Sanjay Dutt’s conviction for possession of illegal arms under the Arms Act. The actor has already served 18 months of the term in prison and will have to serve 42 months more. The four week period given to the actor to surrender himself is due on April 18, 2013.
Sources close to Dutt say he is mulling filing a review petition against the judgement.
“There exists the option of filing a review petition but nothing has been finalised as yet,” the actor’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde had said.
Though the actor can also seek pardon from the state governor, he has gone on record to say he would not. “There are many other people who deserve pardon. I want to tell with folded hands to the media, the honourable citizens of the country, that when I am not going for pardon then there can be no debate about it,” said Sanjay Dutt in a press conference a while ago.
