Sanjay Dutt has released a statement after the 3.5 years sentencing given to him today over his involvement in the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

He said, “Whatever is the judgment of the court I will respect it. I want all to pray for me and god is great.”

The actor’s lawyer Satish Maneshinde added, “Sanjay Dutt told me I have accepted the judgement as it is. I have accepted it. I man not sure what relief he can claim. But Sanjay Dutt will abide by the apex court’s order of undergoing the sentence of three-and-a-half years in letter and spirit. Three-and-a-half-years is not a long period. We have prepared him (for sentence) from the very beginning. Sanjay Dutt is a strong man and will fight for himself.”

Dutt was sentenced to a jail term of six years for illegal possession of firearms acquired from terrorist acquaintances, who were responsible for the 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts on 31st July 2007. He was granted bail in November 2007.

The blasts occurred at 12 places including Bombay Stock Exchange building, Air-India Building at Nariman Point, at Worli opposite Century Bazaar, Hotels Sea Rock and Juhu Centaur.
