The President of India has sent the clemency petition of Sanjay Dutt to the Maharashtra Governor for his opinion. Are there special considerations for Dutt at all levels ? Is there a special law in the country for celebrities ?
Firstly , how many petitions are pending with the President for clemency and why this particular petition has been chosen. I can now understand how Katju would have served during his tenure as Justice in Supremem Court and why he had been selected for this plum position. If Sanjay Dutt is granted the concession, it shall not be in the interest of justice or leave a positive note.
