Congress Leader Sidhu Back Stabbed By His Own Party. State Government Wants Him To Go Jail


Punjab Congress leader and former cricketer, Navjot Singh Sidhu has landed in trouble as the 30-year-old road rage case has re-surfaced.

In 1988, Navjot Singh Sidhu got into a verbal fight with 65-year-old Gurnam Singh. Following the fight, he slapped the man who was declared dead on reaching the hospital.

The Punjab and Haryana high court found the former cricketer guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder and he was given announced a jail term of 3 years. However, the Supreme Court had granted him the bail later.

Now as per ANI, Punjab Government has requested Supreme Court to uphold the conviction of Sidhu.

The victim’s family has also appealed SC to enhance the jail term of Sidhu.

Addressing the bench, the state government counsel told that Gurnam Singh had died of brain hemorrhage, and not cardiac arrest-

“There is not a single evidence that suggest that the cause of death was cardiac arrest and not brain hemorrhage. The trial court verdict was rightly set aside by the High Court. Accused A1 (Navjot Singh Sidhu) had given fiesty blow to deceased Gurnam Singh leading to his death through brain hemorrhage.”
