The Punjab government on Thursday sought conviction of minister Navjot Singh Sidhu in a road rage case.

Addressing a press conference at the party headquarters, Akali leader Daljit Singh Cheema said, "It is odd that the govt is sending one report to the Supreme Court endorsing the murder conviction against Sidhu, but has refused to follow it up with an appropriate communication to the governor".

Sidhu, addressing the gathering during the inauguration of one of its kind initiative in the form of Fire Safety Week to be observed from April 14 to 20, said that the Chief Minister has allotted Rs eight crore for purchasing fire suits for the firemen and another Rs 11 crore for purchasing 20 fire vehicles and 50 fire brigades. He said, "The matter is sub judice and I can not react to it".

Counsel for Punjab government told a Bench of Justices J. Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul that Patiala resident Gurnam Singh had died after a fist blow by Sidhu following an altercation between the two on December 27, 1988. It also accused the Congress government of playing a fixed match with Sidhu and of shielding him. "Government is in a state of confusion and so the CM isn't going to the office". "Similarly, in this case also, he is happy to be seen with Sidhu rather than the poor family that has lost an innocent member at his hands", SAD alleged.

Secondly, Saron pointed out to the medical board report of the deceased which said Gurnam Singh had died of subdural brain haemorrhage and not cardiac arrest.

The trial court had acquitted Sidhu, whereas the Punjab and Haryana High Court reversed his acquittal, convicting him under Section 304 Part II, Indian Penal Code (IPC), for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.

"It is beyond understanding that how has trial court arrived to its finding that Gurnam Singh had died of cardiac arrest, when there was not a discussion or evidence about it. Doctors in cross examination have said that the cause of death was head injury", he said. Though the high court held Sidhu guilty awarding him a three year jail term, the Supreme Court suspended the sentence in 2007 which allowed him to contest elections.
