New Delhi: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt approached the Supreme Court on Thursday seeking suspension of his conviction in connection with the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts to contest the coming Lok Sabha polls.
Dutt, who has been tipped to contest the polls from Lucknow, was held guilty under the Arms Act by a Mumbai court, which has sentenced him to six years of imprisonment.
