SC holds Sidhu guilty in road rage case, spares him jail term

The Supreme Court today convicted Punjab Tourism Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu for voluntarily causing hurt to a 65-year-old man but spared him a jail term in the 1988 road rage case.

A bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul reversed the High Court order and found Sidhu guilty of voluntarily causing hurt to a 65-year-old man.

The bench said Sidhu is guilty of Section 323 of IPC and is fined Rs 1,000 for the offence but did not award any sentence.

The court acquitted the co-accused Rupinder Singh Sandhu.

Sandhu was sentenced to a three-year jail by the Punjab & Haryana High Court in the case.
