The Supreme Court, on Thursday, gave its verdict on the 1993 serial bomb blast case and it upheld Sanjay Dutt's conviction under the Arms Act. Sanjay, who has already spent eighteen months behind the bars, will have to serve another three and a half years in jail.
Sanjay is heartbroken by the apex court's decision and he feels that he has already suffered a lot in the past twenty years. However, an emotional and shattered Dutt has promised that he will complete all his projects and won't let the filmmakers down.
"I have already suffered for 20 years and been in jail for 18 months. If they want me to suffer more I have to be strong. I am heart broken because today along with me, my 3 children and my wife and my family will undergo the punishment. I have always respected the judicial system and will continue to do so, even with tears in my eyes. I am going to complete all my films and won't let anyone down,” said the 53-year-old.
“I am overwhelmed by the support of my fans the industry people, the media and all the well-wishers. They have always stood by me and supported me. I know in my heart that I have always been a good human being, respected the system and always been loyal to my country. My family is very emotional right now and I have to be strong for them. I am shattered and in emotional distress. I am sorry I can't come down and meet you all. God is great and he will guide me through this,' he further added.
Dutt has been convicted under the Arms Act in the 1993 Bomb Blasts case, for possessing illegal weapons, which were a part of the consignment of weapons and explosives brought to India for the coordinated serial blasts that killed 257 people and injured over 700.
