Sanjay Dutt gets bail in cheating case filed by producer
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt Monday secured bail from a Mumbai court which had issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against him in a cheating case filed by a movie producer.
Andheri Metropolitan court issued the warrant against Dutt in a complaint filed by producer Shakil Noorani, who, among other things, alleged that the actor had failed to complete his movie "Jaan Ki Baazi" in 2002 despite taking the signing amount of Rs 50 lakh.
Noorani, who also alleged threats by mafia at Dutt's behest, sought a refund of the signing amount and the alleged losses of around Rs 2 crore suffered in the project. Dutt appeared before the court Monday afternoon and sought bail, which was granted. The court issued the warrant after Dutt failed to appear before it on two previous occasions.
