Navjot Singh Sidhu challenges HC order in SC

Former BJP MP from Amritsar Navjot Singh Sidhu and Rupinder Singh Sandhu, convicted a long with him in a road rage case, have filed an appeal in the Supreme Court against Punjab and Haryana High Court judgement sentencing them to three years imprisonment.

The Appellants who filed the petition yesterday, have contended the incident took place in 1988 and the High Court should not have reversed the order of acquittal as there is a long gap of 18 years without there being any compelling circumstances.

The appeal is likely to come up for hearing in January as the High Court has granted him time till January 31, for approaching the Supreme Court for getting a stay against his conviction and sentence.

The High Court has suspended their sentence till that date, and if the two failed to get the stay till that time, then both will have to surrender and go to jail.
The family members of Gurnam Singh have also said publicly that they would file an appeal against the High Court judgement to get the sentence enhanced.
