Sanjay Dutt denies involvement in Mumbai blast case

Press Trust of India

Posted: Dec 18, 2001 at 1352 hrs IST

Sanjay Dutt, film star and accused in 1993 bomb blast case, on Tuesday denied his involvement in the conspiracy and refuted the CBI charge that he possessed an AK-56 rifle and destroyed it.

The actor appeared before designated TADA judge P.D. Kode to give his point of view on the evidence tendered by the CBI.

His lawyers Rajendra Singh, Satish Maneshinde and Farhana Shah submitted arguments on behalf of the actor.

Dutt denied that film producer Samir Hingora and Ibrahim Moosa Chavan had visited his residence in a car laden with arms and ammunition prior to the 1993 explosions.

Dutt's lawyers said the confession of Police Constable Pandharinath Shinde in this regard was incorrect.

The CBI has alleged that Dutt accepted an AK-56 rifle from the accused and asked them to take away other weapons. When Samir Hingora and his associate Hanif Kadawala were held after the blasts they told the police about the rifle kept by Dutt.

The actor was away to Mauritius for a film shoot and instructed his friends on telephone to destroy the weapon from his house. Dutt denied that he had voluntarily confessed before police about accepting AK-56 rifle, 9 Mm pistol and bullets from the accused.
