Navjot Singh Sidhu

The Supreme Court rejected Navjot Singh Sidhu’s request for a few weeks’ surrender.

Former Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu allegedly assaulted Gurnam Singh on December 27, 1988 in a collision with a jeep parked on the road near the Shernwala Gate Crossing in Patiala, Punjab.The victim later died. Thus, Sidhu was charged with murder.

Subsequently, in 1999, the Patiala trial court acquitted him of the murder charge for lack of proper evidence.But when the family of the accused approached the High Court in 2006, Sidhu was convicted. He was then sentenced to three years in prison and fined Rs 1 lakh.

Sidhu appealed to the Supreme Court against the verdict. The apex court, which heard the case, convicted Sidhu 34 years ago a few days ago.In this case, Sidhu was sentenced to one year rigorous imprisonment and ordered to surrender in court.

Following this, Navjot Singh Sidhu had sought in the Supreme Court to give him a few weeks to surrender for health reasons.In this situation, the Supreme Court rejected Navjot Singh Sidhu’s request for a few weeks’ surrender.

Sidhu, who was sentenced to 1 year rigorous imprisonment in a road accident case, had sought leave to surrender. The Supreme Court has issued an order denying this.
