Today, Sanjay Dutt was asked by the Supreme Court if he was friends with the underworld don, Dawood Ibrahim in a hearing of the 1993 Mumbai blasts case in which the Bollywood star had been convicted.
Sanjay Dutt’s laywer, Harish Salve, had read out aloud the confession made by Sanjay Dutt that he had a dinner with the underworld Don in Dubai but there was no friendship between them. The lawyer also answered that their relation was restricted to the film shootings.
He also stated that Dutt had no role in the Mumbai blasts and that a trial court had accepted their confession. He said that after receiving several threats following the Babir Masjid demolition, his family was given three rifles but he returned two of them. He also asked that the third rifle be destroyed.
Further proceeding of the court would continue from Thursday.
Dutt was convicted in July 2007 after he was found in possession of 9mm pistol, which he had even before the blasts, and AK-56 rifle, illegally. Later he was acquitted with graver charges under theTerrorist and Disruptive Activities Act (TADA) law, which is now defunct. He received a six year jail term in which he had served for 16 months in Jail.
He appealed for a bail since there was no evidence that could point out to his involvement in the case.
