Super Fight League (SFL) co-founder Sanjay Dutt sentenced terrorist links

India's Supreme Court has ruled that Bollywood actor and Super Fight League (SFL) co-founder Sanjay Dutt must return to prison for his connection with the 1993 Mumbai blasts.

The actor has been on bail since 2007 when he appealed against his original sentence of six years. On Thursday, the Supreme Court reduced it to five years.
Dutt was convicted in 2006 of buying weapons from bombers who attacked Mumbai. He spent 20 months in jail.

There has been some suggestion that Dutt's conviction and prison sentence might put the future of the SFL in jeopardy, but he has been connected to this case since the promotion was formed. The actor was initially arrested under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Act in 1993 and spent 18 months in jail until he was granted bail.
