Navjot Singh Sidhu sentenced to one year in jail a case 34 years ago

Former Punjab State Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu has been sentenced by the Supreme Court to one year in jail.

New Delhi: It is said that on December 27, 1988, Navjot Singh Sidhu and his friend Rupinder Singh Chandu parked their gypsy car in the middle of the road near the Sheranwala Gate Crossing in Patiala.

The 65-year-old Gurnam Singh, who was in the car at the time, told them to move, so Sidhu and his friend allegedly hit Gurnam Singh on the road.

In this case, on September 22, 1999, Judge of the Sessions Court of Patiala, Navjot Singh Sidhu, acquitted Gurnam Singh of his death.

Gurnam Singh’s family has appealed to the Punjab and Haryana High Court against this. In December 2006, the Punjab and Haryana High Court sentenced Sidhu to three years in prison.

Sidhu appealed to the Supreme Court against the order. Following Sidhu’s contention that the evidence and medical reports against him were inconsistent, the Supreme Court suspended Sidhu’s sentence in 2007.

Then on May 15, 2018, the Supreme Court acquitted Sidhu of the case.

On September 12, 2018, Gurnam Singh’s family filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking review of the order.

The apex court, which ruled in the case today, sentenced Navjot Singh Sidhu to one year in jail.
