Actor Sanjay Dutt will have to surrender by May 16 to serve his remaining 42 months jail term in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case as the Supreme Court on Friday rejected his review petition.


Dutt’s hope of getting relief were dashed after an SC bench declined to review its March 21 verdict holding the star guilty under the Arms Act and sentencing him to five years. The only option left for the 53-year-old actor is to file a curative petition before the top court.

The bench also dismissed similar pleas by six other convicts — Yusuf Mohsin Nulwalla, Khalil Ahmed Sayed Ali Nazir, Mohamed Dawood Yusuf Khan, Shaikh Asif Yusuf, Muzammil Umar Kadri and Mohd Ahmed Shaikh— in the case.
