1993 Mumbai Blasts: The Verdict

Actor Sanjay Dutt's bail has been extended until December 21 by the TADA court. Dutt has been held guilty for possessing arms in the 1993 bomb blast case and the court heard his plea on Tuesday.

Sanjay was found guilty on November 28, under the Arms Act, for possessing a nine mm pistol and an AK-56 rifle in the 1993 bomb blast case. However, he was granted time till Tuesday to surrender.

He moved an application on Monday, seeking more time till the case concludes or the final verdict is delivered or until such time the Court may permit.

The actor pleaded that he needed to make arrangements for his daughter Trishala's education in USA. She is coming to India on December 23 and he needed to spend time with her.

Sanjay also urged that his father Sunil Dutt died without making a will and he needed to manage family properties for which he sought time to surrender.

The actor also said he had incomplete film projects in hand and desired to finish his assignments so that the producers did not suffer losses.

Sanjay also pleaded that he would invoke provision of Section 4 of Probation of Offenders Act at the time of making submissions on quantum of sentence.

Under this provision he can be released on bond on assurance of good conduct for a period not less than three years.

Under the Arms Act, Sanjay faces punishment ranging from five to ten years.
