Sanjay Dutt is again making news.
This time it seems that he is certainly innocent. I have strong reasons to believe:
1) It was an ex-parte Arbitration Award and seems like Sanjay Dutt either ignored the proceedings or was not aware of it. The sum of Rs. 2.03 crore is very small for this Actor.
2) The order of Mumbai High Court seizing the offices of Sanjay Dutt itself seems flawed and Sanjay Dutt can quickly get relief if he moves the Court. The award mentions that property worth crores of Rupees be sezied for a sum of Rs. 2.3 crores. This order seems flawed itself in first place.
3) The case also seems to be barred under the principles of Res-judicata as Sanjay’s had earlier won the case against Noorani. Only that Noorani filed the case again in a different forum by changing the facts. It seem that Sanjay Dutt has a good case before the Mumbai High Court. Somewhere it seems that the actor ignored this case thinking it to be very small for him (and rightly so), the only thing he forgot was the bad publicity that this case has brought to him. I wish Sanjay a good luck in winning the case.
