Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt will surrenderA before a special TADA court in Mumbai tomorrow. Sanjay has beenA convicted in the 1993 bomb blasts case. On Tuesday, he withdrew his plea to surrender at the Yerwada Jail in Pune. The actor had told the court yesterday that he was facing threat to his life from fundamentalist groups and should be allowed to surrender at the Yerwada Jail directly. Mr Dutt filed the application in the TADA court, hours after the Supreme Court refused to grant the actor additional time to surrender for undergoing the remaining jail term in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case. The Supreme Court was hearing a petition filed by a film producer, who sought time for Mr Dutt to complete his under-production films. On May 10, the Supreme Court had dismissed Mr Dutt's plea seeking review of its judgement on his conviction and five-year jail term. The 53-year-old actor was earlier granted four more weeks to surrender to undergo the remaining jail term. Mr Dutt was convicted by the TADA court for illegally possessing a 9 mm pistol and an AK-56 rifle that were part of a consignment of weapons and explosives brought to India for coordinated serial blasts that killed 257 people and injured over 700 in 1993.
