11 other convicts return to prison sans Sanjay Dutt

As Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt got a month’s reprieve, 11 others convicted in the 1993 Mumbai blasts and released on bail surrendered on Wednesday before a Mumbai court after the Supreme Court rejected their appeals, an official said.

Mumbai TADA Special Judge G A Sanap directed the 11 to be shifted to the Arthur Road Central Jail, from where they will be transferred to other jails in the state later.

Among those who surrendered Wednesday were Sadashiv Talwadekar, a customs official who was sentenced to eight years in jail and has already spent six years. He was charged with taking bribes to permit the landing of an arms consignment at Shekhadi beach, Raigad district, allegedly sent by the absconding prime accused, Tiger Memon, from Pakistan, a few weeks before the 12 March, 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai.
