Sanjay Dutt made a brief statement and did not answer questions. He said:
I am a law abiding citizen of my country. I respect the law. I have the highest respect for what the decision is and I will abide by all the terms and conditions the honourable Supreme Court has put on me. Honourable Supreme Court has given me time to surrender and I will surrender at that time. I have not applied for pardon.There are many other people who deserve pardon. With folded hands want to tell the media, the honourable citizens of my country that when I am not going for a pardon there is no debate about it. Right now I am a shattered man. My family is shattered. It's a very tough time in my life, in our lives. I want to thank everybody who supported me. I have a lot of work. I have to finish all that work. I have to spend all this time with my family. With folded hands I want to tell you that just let me be in peace till the time I go in. I love my country and all the citizens. I love India.
