SC to consider Sanjay Dutta\'s review plea

New Delhi, May 10 :-

The Supreme court on Friday is scheduled to take up Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt\'s plea that seeks review of its March 21 decision where he was convicted in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case, reports said.

A bench of P Sathasivam and B S Chauhan will reportedly take up the actor\'s petition as well as that of six others connected with the case.

The other convicts appealing for review petitions are Yusuf Mohsin Nulwalla, Khalil Ahmed Sayed Ali Nazir, Mohamed Dawood Yusuf Khan, Shaikh Asif Yusuf, Muzammil Umar Kadri and Mohd Ahmed Shaikh.

The Supreme Court on Mar 21 announced its verdict on Dutt for illegal arms possession during the Mumbai bombings that had killed 257 people in 1993 in the nation\'s financial hub.

The Supreme Court on Apr 17 gave four weeks more to Dutt to surrender before the law and go to jail to serve his term after his conviction in the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts case.

Dutt had requested for an additional six months\' time to surrender.

On March 12, 1993, twelve coordinated blasts in Bombay Stock Exchange, Air India Building at Nariman Point and hotels Sea Rock and Juhu Centaur resulted in death of at least 257 people and injury to more than 700.

It was alleged that the blasts were the instruments to avenge the demolition of the Babri mosque in Ayodhya in December 1992 and were allegedly conspired by underworld don Dawood Ibrahim (believed to be hiding in Pakistan now) and two other terrorists-Tiger Memon and his brother Yakub Memon.
