Sanjay Dutt sentenced to 6 yrs in prison

Tuesday, July 31, 2007 (Mumbai): Actor Sanjay Dutt has been sentenced to six years in prison for illegal possession of arms in connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.

In his observation on Sanjay Dutt the judge said that acquisition of guns showed scant respect for law.

The judge cancelled Dutt's bail and he will be taken into custody right away. He has been fined a sum of Rs 25,000.

However, Dutt's lawyers said that they will appeal in the Supreme Court.

Soon after the verdict was pronounced Dutt asked the judge to be allowed to call his daughter and also pleaded for few days to surrender.

Earlier, the judge had refused the probation report of Dutt and other accused Yusuf Nullwala and Kersi Adajania.

He also said that Dutt committed the offence and also made others do so. He further observed that Dutt made Nullwala an offender by making him destroy the weapon.

Nullwala has been sentenced to five years in prison while Kersi gets two years in jail.

One of the aides of Sanjay Dutt, Russi Mulla who was also accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case has been let off by the special TADA court.

Mulla will be given probation on surety of Rs 1 lakh and will be under observation for a year.

The trial in the Mumbai serial blasts case finally came to an end with all 100 convicted being sentenced. The serial blasts on March 12, 1993 had killed 257 people.

Arthur jail to house Sanjay Dutt

Arthur Road Jail is Mumbai's highest security prison with 22 barracks meant to house 800 undertrials. But currently it's home to 3000 inmates.

Among them are the who's who of the Mumbai underworld.
  • Dawood's brother Iqbal Kaskar, key aides Ejas Pathan, Saleem Shaikh and Ehtesham Haji.
  • The Chhota Rajan gang represented by DK Rao, Saji Joseph and Vineet Yadav.
  • Also Ashwin Naik, notorious for instigating gang wars inside prison.
All of them are either held in a separate barrack or in the dreaded unda cell.

The cell is an isolation cell shaped like an egg, meant for terrorists and hardcore criminals, where Sanjay Dutt was kept briefly during his 18-month prison stint.

If he is convicted by the TADA court, Dutt will go back not to the unda cell, but to the barrack next to the court.

It's a barrack where all those who have been held guilty or are awaiting verdict in the 1993 blasts case are being held.

Before Judge Kode began delivering his order, the barrack already had 30 blast accused. Since then, 60 more have been added. This is where Dutt will go if he is convicted.

The sentence being reversed appears to be slim at this point. For Dutt, this dialogue from his Munnabhai film should seem apt: “Ek kahani khatam toh dujee shuru ho gayee...Mamu.”
The clear message that is coming from the judiciary and the government is that there will be no middle ground on treating people involved in such cases. The court has proven that it has not treated Dutt as a celebrity.
The news of the sentencing has just come in. I wonder how this news will go down with the film fraternity. What will be the reaction of his fans and the general public? Does the public see Dutt in the same way it sees Munnabhai? A Munnabhai who fought for the have-nots, and who showed them what love is? Or, will they look at him as Dutt, who stocked firearms in his house during the communal riots instead of seeking police protection for his family?

I fondness listening to music from my iPod while I'm on the emigrate, be it on the bus, the indoctrinate, or justified while doing groceries. Quest of that common sense, I always requirement a shapely span of stereo earphones with me, and of course on some days I'd like my earphones to be an whistles, where I tournament it with my utensils for the benefit of that day. So I obtain a pair of designer earphone every other month. Recently, I bought the [url=]Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable)[/url] from in their Speakers & Earphones section. has become my lapse online shopping site that I visit time again to swallow whatever I may need. Prosperous to the DIY accumulation or the mall has become kind of less pleasurable than browsing through the encyclopaedic variety of things at I would also like to get stereo speakers a certain prime for my home.

These conniver beats that I bought comes with a carrying suitcase, which makes the designer earphone actually at one's fingertips to pile up and carry. I've uploaded a pair of pictures of the deviser stereo earphone and the carrying valise so you can see what comes with the earphone decided I bought from [url=][/url].

On some days, I'd like to attend to righteous music with a hard-working bass, so I also do ordain in godlike pairs of stereo earphone like Sennheiser. They're not so much architect beats, but really considerate as a service to getting into the music. Although the conniver beats I bought from is not a strong disgrace like Sennheiser or Sony, it does noiseless block out of pocket external noise, making instead of listening pleasure. The style the designer earphone contours nearly the ears also makes for easy survive, and the permissible stuff back the Designer Beats by Dr. Dre In-Ear Stereo Earphone with Carrying Bag (3.5mm Jack/110CM-Cable) I bought from is that it comes with multiple sizes of attention tips and supernumerary heed buds. These things are baffling to manage so I'm glad the artificer beats came with it. I can put these ear tips and buds on my other pairs of earphone too. The carrying pouch is of course a major remuneration representing easy storage and portability.

I like to match this doublet of draughtsman beats by Dr. Dre with my pink spaghetti strap and milky shorts, I mark it goes fully with this outfit. While waiting in queues or waiting for the treatment of a pen-pal for a lunch selection, I take part in my favorite Spile Knocking Drastic distraction on my iPod Touch with this pair of stereo earphone. The alien crash gets blocked in so affectionately, and coupled with the hugely engrossing draw on unflinching, I don't methodical make out when my friend arrives! Splendidly, that's what a good pair of stereo earphone should do, I believe. Notwithstanding how, I do appoint it a object to let only earphone out of my regard whenever I shirty the way, or when I'm walking on a comparatively solitary road. This I do for the benefit of protection reasons. I sure wouldn't want to get into an casualty or be in harm's way just because I was wearing my plotter stereo earphone and couldn't hear risk make a proposal to my way.
