Sanjay Dutt‘s supporters and family members may have hope that his mercy petition will get positive response but tough US laws makes it hard for Dutt to visit his daughter Trishala there. According to US laws no person convicted can obtain a visa to visit the country.
Sanjay Dutt’s close aide says “Every time he had to travel abroad for outdoor locations, he would undergo a hearing before being handed a visa, that too for countries other than the US and Canada,” . He goes on to add “He doesn’t have a passport but there was always hope he could obtain a visa to visit the US. But with the Supreme Court sentence, it will be practically impossible for him to get a visa to the US, even if he is pardoned and doesn’t go to prison. This conviction also means he cannot visit 90 per cent of the countries that he could till now.”
