Supreme Court finds Navjot Singh Sidhu guilty in a road rage case

Navjot Singh Sidhu Will Go to Jail? Supreme Court Soon to Announce Verdict in 11 Year Long Pending Case Navjot Singh Sidhu

The Supreme Court will decide on Tuesday if Navjot Singh Sidhu will go to jail in a road rage case that resulted in the death of an elderly person in Punjab in 1988.

A bench of Justice J. Chelameswar and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul had reserved the judgment on April 18 after hearing arguments from counsels of the Punjab government as well as Sidhu and his cousin.

The tourism minister in the Amarinder Singh government, Sidhu had hit a 65-year-old man, Gurnam Singh, on the head during an argument over the parking of a vehicle in December 1988.

The victim's family has appealed to the SC to enhance the three year jail time given by the lower court. It should be noted that Singh had succumbed to his injuries in the hospital.

Last month, Sidhu's advocate argued in the court that it was not his client's fault behind the death of the victim in the road rage case. The Supreme Court exonerated the co-accused in the case of all charges. It sentenced them to three years in jail and imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh each.

But the High Court suspended the sentences to allow Sidhu and his accomplice to approach the Supreme Court.

Reversing the high court's ruling, the apex court acquitted him of a serious charge of culpable homicide (killing of a man that does not amount to murder) but found him guilty of a much lesser charge.

Sidhu then beat up Singh.

From Karnataka Election Results 2018 to Punjab Tourism Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu's conviction, it seems like Tuesday was a bad, not so good and a awful day for the Congress.

The state also thrashed the defence out up by Sidhu that the victim had died of cardiac arrest and said, "there is not a single evidence which suggest that the cause of death was cardiac arrest and not brain hemorrhage".

The Supreme Court today convicted Sidhu for voluntarily hurting a 65-year-old man but spared him a jail term. Senior lawyer RS Cheema, who was leading Sidhu's case, had said before the bench, the order of the High Court was not based on medical evidence, it was based on conjecture and there is no justification for such an estimate.
