SC rejects plea to cancel Sanjay Dutt’s bail

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court today dismissed Bollywood film producer Shakeel Noorani’s plea seeking cancellation of actor Sanjay Dutt’s bail in the 1993 Mumbai serial blast case.

Noorani, who is involved in a financial dispute with the actor, had approached the apex court alleging that he is being threatened by underworld on Dutt’s behest.

Dismissing his petition, a bench of justices P Sathasivam and B S Chauhan said, “You cannot use this court to solve your financial disputes in a criminal case.”

“How is the producer involved in this (Mumbai blast) criminal case? You file an FIR. We are dismissing your petition,” the bench said.

Advocate Sanjay Hegde, appearing for the producer, pleaded that the bench hear his petition and pointed out that Noorani has already filed an FIR but nothing is being done about it.

“My life is being threatened by the underworld and I have already filed an FIR in the case,” Hedge said on behalf of his client.

Dutt was granted bail in 2007 on his appeal challenging his conviction in the Mumbai serial blasts. A special TADA court in Mumbai had in November 2006 acquitted Dutt of TADA charges but had held him guilty under the Arms Act for possessing a weapon illegally. He was sentenced to six years imprisonment.
In his plea before the apex court, Noorani had alleged that he had received threat calls from the underworld at Dutt’s behest as the caller had asked him to withdraw his civil suit pending against the actor before the Bombay High Court.

Noorani had filed a suit before the High Court after Dutt refused to complete a film launched by him in 2001. He claimed to have suffered huge loss due to non-completion of the film.

Acting on Noorani’s suit, the High Court had in December 2010 ordered attachment of Dutt’s residence at Palli Hills and office located at Santa Cruz.-PTI
