A TADA court in Mumbai today convicted actor Sanjay Dutt in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case. The actor was one of the prime accused in the case.
Sanjay has been found guilty under the Arms Act for possession of arms including AK-56 Rifle and a 0.9 mm pistol. He might be taken under custody after the court proceedings. The minimum punishment suspected for the charges is five years.
The court found him guilty of charges framed under the Sections 3 and 7 read with Section 25 of the Arms Act. However, the court acquitted him of charges framed under Section 120-b of the Indian Penal Code (conspiracy) and Section 3 (3) of TADA. As Sanjay has been acquitted of terrorism charges, he will be able to apply for bail after spending some weeks in jail.
Sanjay Dutt reached the designated court today amid tight security arrangements.
Dutt as is known had received 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.
