The apex court accepted the plea of humanitarian grounds raised by him for extending the time for surrender which was to expire tomorrow but made it clear that no further extension will be granted to him
A day before the deadline for his surrender ended, Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt on Wednesday got partial relief from the Supreme Court which granted him four weeks time on ‘humanitarian’ grounds to surrender before jail authorities to undergo the 42 months remaining sentence in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
Dutt, 53, had sought six months time to surrender to complete his seven movies in which producers have invested over Rs278 crore.
The apex court accepted the plea of humanitarian grounds raised by him for extending the time for surrender which was to expire tomorrow but made it clear that no further extension will be granted to him.
“Considering the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case and reasons stated in the petition, we are not inclined to extend the time by six months. However, we extend the time by four weeks from tomorrow. It is made clear that no further extension will be granted,” a bench comprising justices P Sathasivam and BS Chauhan said.
The bench also noted in its order that senior advocate Harish Salve, appearing for Dutt, has agreed to the same that no further extension will be sought.
