Mumbai Court grants bail to Sanjay Dutt after issuing NBW

Mumbai, Apr. 22 (ANI): Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt today secured bail from a Mumbai court, which had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him in a cheating case filed by producer Shakeel Noorani.

A city court here issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Dutt for failing to appear in a case of alleged threat to a film producer after which the actor gave himself up and secured bail.

The Andheri Metropolitan Magistrate's court, which granted bail to Dutt, fixed the matter for hearing on May 3.

Noorani, who also alleged he received threat calls at the actor's behest, sought a refund of the signing amount and the alleged losses of around Rs.2 crore suffered in the project.

Noorani had earlier moved the Indian Motion Pictures Producers Association (IMPPA), which had directed Dutt to pay up Rs. 2 crore of losses incurred on the incomplete movie.

The two are at loggerheads after Dutt abandoned Noorani's film 'Jaan Ki Baazi' half way through in 2002 and refused to shoot further. (ANI)
