Sanjay Dutts special requests
Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was convicted in the 1993 Bombay blasts case for carrying illegal weapons, reaches TADA court to surrender. The actor was escorted by filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt and wife Maanayata Dutt. A Mumbai court has allowed the actor to get home-made food delivered to him and has agreed to his appeal to be provided with a thin mattress and pillow and medicines for a month.
After that, the jail authorities will decide whether these allowances will be continued. But the court rejected Mr Dutt’s request to be allowed to smoke electronic cigarettes in prison. He had also asked for permission to meet his family and to be allowed to move around freely in jail. The court has not yet decided on those requests.
