Road Rage Case: Navjot Singh Sidhu surrenders in court

Former Punjab Congress President Navjot Singh Sidhu has surrendered in the road rage case. He was sentenced to one year rigorous imprisonment by the Supreme Court in this 1988 case. Earlier it was reported that Sidhu wants four to six weeks time to surrender. He was about to file an application in the Supreme Court for this. However, Sidhu surrendered in Delhi’s Patiala Court this afternoon.

The Punjab lawyer had protested the demand of four to six weeks’ time for Sidhu to surrender. He said 34 years does not mean that crime dies. Now the verdict has been given, so they need 3-4 weeks again.

However, Punjab’s counsel said that it is the discretion of the court to consider granting time. Justice Khanwilkar asked Sidhu’s lawyer to file an application and mention before the CJI for the formation of the bench.

However, before the talk of seeking extension of surrender, the news had come that Sidhu would surrender today (Friday, May 20) in Patiala House Court. Some Congress leaders and supporters had reached Navjot Singh Sidhu’s residence on Friday morning. Sidhu has been sentenced to one year rigorous imprisonment by the Supreme Court in the 1988 ‘road rage’ case.

The Supreme Court on Thursday sentenced Navjot Singh Sidhu to one year rigorous imprisonment in the 1988 road rage case. The top court had said that any sympathy for the lesser punishment would do more harm to the justice system and undermine the public’s confidence in the effectiveness of the law. “I will respect the law,” Sidhu had tweeted after the court’s verdict yesterday.
