Congress leader and former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sadhu has been sentenced to one year in prison for killing a man on the street in 1988.
According to the report of NDTV, Navjot Sadhu has accepted the order of the court.
The charges in the case were related to the incident which took place on December 27, 1988, in which it was alleged that Gurnam Singh had suffered a head injury due to Navjot Sadhu, which resulted in his death.
Earlier, the court had reserved its decision in the same case on a request to extend the scope of notice.
The petition was filed under a revised petition.
Opposing the case, Sadhu said that the purpose was to promote the case against him while the Supreme Court had already ruled in this regard.
The former Punjab Congress chief was acquitted of criminal murder charges, but was found guilty of injuring him.
On September 22, 1999, a Patiala Sessions Judge acquitted Sadhu, saying the evidence was incomplete and he was given the benefit of the doubt.
However, the victim’s family subsequently challenged the court order and took the matter to the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Sadhu was sentenced to three years in prison in 2006. Against which Navjot Sadhu had appealed and challenged in the Supreme Court.
