Sanjay Dutt pleads for leniency

Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt has pleaded for leniency when he is sentenced for his part in the 1993 serial bomb attacks in Mumbai (Bombay).

Dutt asked Judge PD Kode to consider his humanitarian work and clean record since being let out on bail in 1995 while police continued investigations.

On Tuesday, the judge found Dutt guilty of illegally possessing firearms but cleared him of conspiracy.

Dutt is one of the most high-profile of those accused over the 1993 blasts.

He was originally charged with five offences, including criminal conspiracy and possession of illegal weapons. He was cleared of all charges except for that of possessing weapons. He faces a prison sentence of between five and 10 years.

'I love my country'

Which country is that? Saudi Arabia?
