1993 Mumbai blasts: The Verdict

Actor Sanjay Dutt on Tuesday appeared before the designated TADA court in Mumbai, which is likely to deliver its verdict on his alleged role in the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts case.

Wearing a check shirt and denims, the 47-year-old actor arrived along with some of his Bollywood colleagues and family members at the court in Arthur Road jail in central Mumbai amid tight security as media persons jostled to catch a glimpse of him.

Emotions ran high as a tense-looking Sanjay hugged his friends after getting out of the car and nodded at waiting camerapersons as he walked into the court premises.

Earlier, several personalities from the Hindi film industry including producer-director Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Karan Johar and actor Fardeen Khan visited Sanjay's residence in Mumbai's suburban Bandra. He hugged sister and Congress MP Priya Dutt and brother-in-law Kumar Gaurav before leaving for the court.

Sanjay is charged under Section 120-b of the Indian Penal Code (conspiracy) and Section 3 (3) of TADA for allegedly receiving three AK-56 rifles, its ammunition, 9 mm pistol, its cartridges and hand grenades which were part of the consignment smuggled by Tiger Memon to set off a series of blasts in Mumbai on March 12, 1993.

The actor is also charged under Section 5 of TADA for possessing weapons, Section 6 of the same act (for contravening provisions of other acts) and Section 3 and 7 read with Section 25 of the Arms Act.
