Law has completed it's role. Now, whoever is the person involved or affected, if there are provisions for pardoning, let it be done but not only in certain selected cases.

The rule of the law applies to everybody. If our law permits pardon for convicts on some ground, what is there to be questioned. Let them make a plea. The government after usual procedures will decide the verdict. It applies to all the convicts convicted. There are instances where a doctor's sentence was suspended and he was directed to serve the people of some remote areas for the convicted period and in a landmark judgment in Chennai under the plea of the victim's wife, who had said that her husband was killed by her parents and sister because of his character and by punishing them would kill her and her children who had no support to live released them and directed them to take full care of the victim's family.

The law does nothing to reform criminals. we are talking about india and not UK. here they are treated like dirt in jails. i have seen the real position in my social service.
the aim must be to curb crime , eliminate crime and not criminal. in this case , sanjay dutt had a 20 year crime free life , he is a reformed man and in no way danger to society. so he deserves mercy

I don't find anything wrong in asking for pardon for Sanjay. While he possessed the firearm illegally and has already spent 18 months in jail and 20 years of trauma, he deserved a lenient relook for punishment. Sup.Court has given the verdict which should be respected but the Governor can pardon him.
