Mr Dutt reached Court around 2:00 PM but took a long time to enter as he was mobbed by hundreds of people(both fans & media) making it very difficult for him to enter. After a plea by the actor himself, Dutt finally managed to walk inside the City Civil & Sessions Court around 2:30 PM to surrender and undergo his prison term in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
Dutt, with a red 'tilak' on the forehead and a tabiz in red string, entered the Court 54 (Tada Court) his wife Manyata & sister Pryanka around 2:30 PM and sat at the chair for the entire period except when he was called in the witness box for identification. He seemed calm and prepared for facing the jail term.
His Lawyer filed Application for allowing Dutt to have some ‘extra benefits’. Out of the list many of them were allowed including medicines, separate fan, bedding etc. However the plea for having ‘electronic cigarette’ ( a instrument which are used to reduce smoking) was not allowed.
It has been informed that from the Court he will be taken to the Arthur Road Jail. From there, he will be moved to Pune's Yerawada Jail to begin the 42 months left of the five-year jail term he was handed by the Supreme Court.
