While interacting with the media at his apartment at Imperial Heights in Mumbai, the very emotional Sanjay Dutt requested the media not to tag him as a terrorist involved in the '93 Mumbai bomb blasts case. "I just want to request the press that I am not a terrorist. I was acquitted from the court in the bomb blast conspiracy case. I was convicted of the Arms Act case.Hence, I request, if you say anything in the press about me, don't say '93 bomb blast case convict," he said. He even mentioned that Supreme court acquitted him of the '93 Mumbai bomb blast conspiracy case and specified that he was convicted of illegal arms act. Sanjay Dutt mentioned that his father Sunil Dutt, who all his life wanted to see his son free, would have been extremely happy on the day when the judge declared him not to be a terrorist. "When the honourable judge told that day that I am not a terrorist, it was a big news for me. If my father would have been living then, he would have been happy to hear that." (ANI)
