Mumbai, Apr 16 (): Requesting the court to grant him few more days to surrender, actor Sanjay Dutt along with another convict Zaibunissa Kazi on Monday moved the Supreme Court arguing that their punishment should be kept in abeyance until the Maharashtra governor or the President of India decides on pardon.
Sanjay Dutt who at present is shooting for Raju Hirani’s ‘P.K.’ in Mumbai is also dubbing for T P Agarwal’s ‘Policegiri’ and therefore requested the court his desire to complete all his film projects before he goes to jail.
Dutt is also likely to shoot for Karan Johar’s ‘Unglee’ with Emran Hashmi which he is planning to do this week. Emran has also cancelled his promotion dates of ‘Ek Thi Daayan in order to help Dutt complete ‘Unglee’.
Sanjay Dutt who is likely to surrender this week to serve his sentence for illegal possession of arms in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, is looking forward to conservative estimates, which means the actor will be serving a period of two years and nine months and will be possibly released on January 5, 2016.
Sanjay Dutt can also be released still earlier if the state and jail authorities grant him special and state remissions-extra days credited to the jail term.
Sanjay Dutt earlier said that he would not seek clemency in the matter.
In a recent case of a sixty-seven year old British national Duncan Grant, who was imposed six years jail for sexually abusing street children in the Anchorage shelter was granted special remissions-for being more than 65 years of age and also for supporting prison authorities in revising the Maharashtra state police manual by including guiding principle set by the All India Model Prison Manual and teaching plumbing.
Sanjay Dutt has been asked by the SC to surrender within four weeks to serve his remaining term of about three-and-half years as he has already spent 18 months in jail.
