Sanjay Dutt settles in for the long haul

May 17, 2013,Mumbai:--

Six pairs of undergarments, a kurta, a pair of pajamas, two reading glasses, two bars of soap, two toothbrushes, a toothpaste, two bottles of shampoo, a pair of slippers, three tubes of a mosquito repellant gel, a bedsheet, a mattress, a pillow, a copy each of the Hanuman Chalisa, the Bhagwad Gita and the Ramayana, and electronic cigarettes. These are what 1993 blasts case convict Sanjay Dutt requested that he be allowed to take to jail when he surrendered before the Tada court on Thursday.

Four other convicts — Yusuf Nulwalla, Kersi Adajania, Essa Memon, and Altaf Syed — also surrendered a little after 3pm.

The actor's arrival at the court was not smooth. At least one scuffle broke out before between his supporters and mediapersons. At the court, Dutt was hurt as onlookers mobbed him. He was heard muttering "madness" to Nulwalla.

Later, Dutt was taken to the Arthur Road jail. Around 200 police personnel were posted outside. Soon after his arrival around 9.30pm, a senior jail officer said he would be kept in a separate cell in high-security barrack no. 10. It was earlier occupied by underworld don Mustafa Dossa and some accused in the Adarsh scam case. It is also near the anda cell where terrorist Ajmal Kasab was kept.

Dutt's last few hours before being incarcerated showed that he had reconciled himself to his fate, said a source in his house.
