Indian actor Sanjay Dutt says he'll go to prison as ordered
MUMBAI (AP) - Popular Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt says he has not sought pardon for a 1993 weapons conviction and will serve his prison sentence as ordered by India's Supreme Court.
Dutt broke his silence a week after the court sentenced him to five years in prison for illegal possession of weapons supplied by Mumbai crime bosses linked to a 1993 terror attack that killed 257 people.
He told journalists on Thursday: "I respect the Supreme Court's verdict. I have not applied for any pardon."
Dutt broke down repeatedly while reading out a statement and hugged his sister who is a Congress party lawmaker.
