Last month, Punjab government urged the Supreme Court to confirm the conviction of its own minister Navjot Singh Sidhu in a road rage case that he was involved in 1988 and sentence him to 3 years in prison.
Meanwhile, Punjab Congress chief and Gurdaspur MP Sunil Jakhar said truth has been victorious while reacting to the Supreme Court verdict in the road rage case involving Sidhu.
The prosecution version said Mr. Sidhu and Rupinder Singh Sandhu, represented by senior counsel R.Basant and advocate Karthik Ashok, were allegedly in a Gypsy parked on the middle of a road near the Sheranwala Gate Crossing in Patiala on December 27, 1988. The Sessions Court Judge of Patiala on September 22, 1999, had acquitted Sidhu and his associate, Rupinder Singh Sandhu, due to lack of evidence in the case.
A bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul pronounced the verdict on a cross-appeal filed by the victim's family seeking enhancement of the jail term to them. However, the Punjab government appealed to the apex court to uphold three-year imprisonment. This exchange, according to the prosecution led to a physical assault by the appellants on the victim who was pronounced dead when he was taken to the hospital. They were charged also fined Rs 1 lakh each.
