You let him off, now oblige us !!!


You let him off, now oblige us - that's the petition from 69 of the 100 guilty accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts. In a petition made to the TADA court, the accused have demanded that like Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, they too should be convicted under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and not under the stringent Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act or TADA.Though Sanjay was found guilty of possessing an AK 56 rifle while TADA was in force, he was given a much milder sentence because he claimed he doesn't have a criminal past and needed the gun for self-defence.Now in a petition sent from the Arthur Road Jail, the accused have directly compared themselves with the actor.that's the petition from 69 of the 100 guilty accused in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts.
