Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, who was sentenced to six years vigorous imprisonment, was shifted on Thursday from Mumbai Arthur Road jail to Yerwada jail near Pune, where Mahatma Gandhi was incarcerated for six years. On his way to the new prison, the actor pleaded for prayer from his fans.
"I have full faith in the country's judiciary, my family. Please pray for me", pleaded the actor. He has been sent to Yerwada jail in spite of his plea to stay in Mumbai jail due to security reasons.
He was welcomed by huge fan, who were gathering to have glimpse of him. Now, he will have Abdul Karim Telgi, prime accused in the multi crore stamps scam case for company in the new cell.
The actor has begun his six years sentence in jail in connection to the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. A special court had convicted him for possessing an AK-56 and a 9mm pistol.
