Film actor Sanjay Dutt will file an appeal in the Supreme Court next week to challenge the judgement of the TADA court, which sentenced him to six years’ rigorous imprisonment in the 1993 serial bomb blasts case, his lawyer Satish Maneshinde said on Wednesday.

“Our appeal will have two separate applications — one urging the Supreme Court for bail and the other challenging the ruling,” Maneshinde told HT.

Sanjay’s lawyers will make submissions before the appellate court on the basis of the operative order obtained from the court sentencing the actor to jail for six years.

Maneshinde, who met the actor in jail on Wednesday morning, said, “Sanjay is fine and in high spirits. He is now awaiting relief from the Supreme Court.”
