The Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) court found assistant customs collector RK Singh, senior customs superintendent SM Sayed and Mansoor Ahmed guilty.

It acquitted Ajay Marwah, a close friend of the movie star. The court is expected to give its verdict on Dutt, also an accused in the case, on Tuesday.
