Actor Sanjay Dutt, who has been sentenced to five years in jail for illegal possession of weapons in a case linked to the 1993 Mumbai serial bomb blasts, on Monday moved the Supreme Court seeking more time to surrender.
 
According to television reports, his case will be heard on Tuesday. Dutt has to surrender on or before April 18.

The apex court, which had upheld the death sentence of Yakub Abdul Razak Memon, a key conspirator with Dawood Ibrahim in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, ordered that Dutt return to jail to serve the remainder of his three-and-a-half year sentence for possessing illegal arms.
 
Dutt, who is out on bail, will also have to surrender within four weeks to serve a jail term of 42 months after the apex court reduced to five years the six-year jail term awarded to him by a designated Terrorist and Disruptive Activities court in 2007. He has already spent 18 months behind bars.
