Sanjay Dutt will not be pardoned: Maharashtra governer

NEW DELHI: The Maharashtra, Indian state, governor has decided that famous Bollywood Actor Sanjay Dutt, who was jailed in a case related to the 1993 Mumbai attacks will not be pardoned.

According to sources, governor Vidyasagar Rao rejected the petition on the recommendation of the state home department, which said it would set a bad example as the actor’s guilt was confirmed by the Supreme Court.

It is to be kept in mind that 56-year-old actor was found guilty in 2013 of acquiring illegal weapons from those involved in the deadly 1993 attacks in Mumbai in which 257 people were killed, and hundreds injured.

He was sentenced to six year jail in 2007, he served 18 months but then was out on bail, fighting the conviction until a court in March 2013 ordered him back to jail in Pune.
