Court summons Dutt for provocative speech during LS polls
Mau: A local court has issued summons
to Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt asking him to appear before it
on December 10 in connection with alleged provocative remarks
made by him during an election rally here last year.
Judicial Magistrate Krishna Kumar yesterday issued the
summons to the 51-year-old actor and Arshad Jamal, the local
SP candidate for whom Dutt was campaigning during the Lok
Sabha polls last year.
According to the prosecution, Dutt, then SP General
Secretary, had alleged during the rally that he was booked
under TADA and tortured under the third degree after the 1993
Mumbai serial blasts as he was the son of a Muslim mother
Dutt had been arrested on 19th April 1993 and served
imprisonment for 18 months after he was found in possession of
an AK-56 assault rifle.
Soon after the rally, Mau district police lodged an FIR
against Dutt and Jamal and filed a chargesheet in the court.
