WEB DESK: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, who was released from prison yesterday, made a fervent appeal to dissociate his name once and for all from the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case.
“I want to request and if you all agree to it I will be grateful and thankful.. I am not a terrorist. I have been acquitted by the TADA court in bomb blasts case and conspiracy. I was convicted under Arms Act and this has been declared by the Supreme Court as well,” Sanjay Dutt was quoted as saying by the Indian Express.
Elaborating further on how he was not involved in any conspiracy during the serial bomb blasts, Sanjay Dutt said, “I have been acquitted from all charges under Section 120 B of IPC relating to conspiracy. I have been cleared of all charges by the TADA court. I was convicted in Arms Act.”
As part of his final appeal, Sanjay Dutt said, “I request everyone not to mention 1993 bomb blast while writing about me because I was not involved in it.”
Since his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case, Sanjay Dutt was released from prison yesterday (February 25) after serving about four years for possessing weapons supplied by gangsters behind a series of bomb blasts in Mumbai in 1993.
