Governor flooded with petitions on Sanjay Dutt sentence

Governor flooded with petitions on Sanjay Dutt sentenceMumbai, April 5 Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan has been flooded with at least 60 representations either seeking or opposing clemency for Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, an official said here Friday.

These representations have come from various individuals and organisations including politicians and celebrities across the country after the Supreme Court sentenced the actor to five years in jail for his role in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.

Governor’s secretary V.C. Rastogi has sent all the petitions to the additional chief secretary of the state home department.

Among prominent representations supporting the clemency for Sanjay Dutt were those made by former Supreme Court Justice M. Katju, former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya Prada.

At least 25 individuals and organisations have opposed any leniency to the actor, who has expressed willingness to undergo the sentence.
