[ZESTCaste] ‘Jhappi’ comment still spells trouble for Sanjay Dutt

'Jhappi' comment still spells trouble for Sanjay Dutt
Lucknow,May 25, DHNS:

Sanjay Dutt now knows that "jadu ki jhappis" can make friends of foes
only on screen. Off it, the magical hugs could invite trouble and
long-drawn court trials.

The actor, being tried in a Uttar Pradesh court for saying he wouldn't
mind giving 'jadu ki jhappis' to Chief Minister Mayawati, has been
asked to be present in the Pratapgarh district court on June 9, when
it hears the case next. The case hearing was scheduled for Monday. But
Dutt was not present, as he was not served the summons. The chief
judicial magistrate then wrote to the Mumbai police commissioner to
serve summons on Dutt, so that he could be present for the June 9

On April 16 last year, Dutt had offered to give 'jadu ki jhappis' to
Mayawati, if she didn't mind it, during an election rally at
Pratapgarh, while campaigning for Samajwadi Party in the 2009 general
election. Finding the remarks "objectionable" police registered a case
against him. Similar remarks on the BSP Supremo landed him in trouble
in Barabanki and Mau, too. Sanjay Dutt later explained that he had
made the remarks in a lighter vein and expressed regret if they hurt
