    Guess what dude- You WERE involved in the 1993 blasts, that is why you were convicted. Just because you have served a jail sentence (loosely speaking) does not mean your hands are washed free of the blood of innocent people. You will for ever be ociated with that heinous act. Don't ask yourself to be "dissociated" from that incident, and don't say you were not involved. Saying that could amount to contempt of court which found you guilty of that very crime. Your late father was a respected man, and a man of integrity. Unfortunately you seem to have inherited none of that, given that you are trying to hoodwink people claiming your innocence even after having been convicted and serving a sentence. Your shady drug-related past, ociation with D company and your involvement in the blast has left you with very little credibility among people whose loyalty you have not purchased with money or threat.

    He should be greatful to his father for proper moral advice to admit the truth. Otherwise, like others he would have been declared terrorist for his role.

      Why did BJP Govt release this anti-national person, who procured AK-47 from Anti-national gangsters friends (Abu m, Dawood) ostensibly to fire at "innocent" sanghi rioters during a probable communal riot.

          People, its Sanjay Dutt a spoilt child and convicted criminal...not Nelson Mandela or Bhagat Singh to cheer and celebrate his early release from jail. He has the money, power and legal team to get him out on parole at frequent intervals at his will and finally get a remission of the sentence. If he was person from lower strata, backward cl or minority community, he would have probably rotten in jail beyond the 5 year jail term !!

              Glad to see Sanjay is out of jail now. He crime is less than 1% of the crimes Modi and his ministers do every minute. At least Dutt Sahib and Madam Nargis are smiling in the heaven that their kid is finally out.

                This rogue knows that the BJP is in power in Maharashtra, so he comes out of the prison kissing the Dharti ki Mata and his pranams to the police who were well paid to keep this rogue happy and well fed in prison. If the Congress was in power he would have had his skullcap and told them that he is minority and so the law hounded him. Once a Munnabhai always a terrorism sympathizer.
