Mumbai: The Bollywood’s Munna Bhai (actor- Sanjay Dutt) who was released from the jail, a few weeks ago, is now preferring to move to the Special Trial court, to get his passport return. It was seen that the bollywood actor’s representing lawyer- Subhash Jadhav brought before the Special Judge- G. A. Sanap, a plea where he sought the returning of his clients passport. The said Special Judge- G. A. Sanap is presiding over the case under the provisions of Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act.
It was sought to be maintained by the representing advocate on behalf of actor- Dutt that the passport was surrendered to the Court’s custody, and now the actor is also being released from jail.
In the application preferred by the actor- Dutt, he further sought to maintain that the actor who was convicted by the Court under the provisions of TADA for his offence under the provisions of Arms Act and who was sentenced to suffer rigorous imprisonment for the period of Six months, was not found guilty for all the other offence for which he was earlier charged. As such the convicted- Dutt was acquitted for all such offences.
After, the actor- Dutt has moved to the Apex court in the Nation against his conviction and sentence, however, the Supreme Court of India had upheld his conviction, and his sentence was reduced by it to 5 years period, which is minimum under the provisions of the concerned Law.
It was seen that the actor was taken behind the bars in the prison, in Pune and as per his lawyer, the actor “has undergone his entire imprisonment” and he was freed from Pune’s Yerwada Central Jail on 25th day of February, this year.
Thus, the actor is now claiming his passport back, so that he will be able to travel again.
However, as per the advocate- Deepak Salvi who appeared representing the Central Bureau of Investigation- CBI, found submitting in the agencies reply on such plea, that CBI has “objection” to his plea. Thus, now it is upto the court to decide such plea, that will be done on its next day.
