MUMBAI (AFP) - Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt wept on Thursday as he announced he was abandoning his fight to avoid being sent back to jail for possessing arms supplied by plotters of the deadly 1993 Mumbai blasts. Supporters had been urging Dutt to seek a pardon, after India’s Supreme Court last week struck down his appeal and sentenced him to five years for possessing firearms supplied by gangland bosses who staged a string of bombings that killed 257 people in 1993. But in an emotional press conference, Dutt, whose late parents were two of India’s biggest stars, said he would accept his fate and surrender to prison authorities before a deadline expires in three weeks’ time. “I am a shattered man, my family is shattered. These are tough times in my life,” the muscular and tattooed Dutt told reporters in India’s entertainment hub Mumbai while frequently breaking down in tears. “With folded hands, I want to tell the media and the citizens of the country that I have not applied for pardon,” added Dutt, whose mother Nargis starred in the iconic film “Mother India”.
