Navjot Singh Sidhu, a Congress leader, was taken to Patiala Central Jail on Friday after surrendering to serve a one-year sentence imposed by the Supreme Court in a 1988 road rage killing case.

Surinder Dalla, Sidhu’s media advisor stated “Navjot Singh Sidhu has appeared before the Chief Judicial Magistrate. He is detained by the authorities. Other legal procedures, such as medical examinations, would be implemented.”

Sidhu was cleared of the charges of culpable homicide, but convicted of the crime of voluntarily causing harm.

However, Sidhu was fined Rs 1,000 by the court, and his companion, Rupinder Singh Sandhu, was acquitted in the case.

Due to a lack of evidence in the case and the benefit of the doubt, the Sessions Court Judge of Patiala discharged Sidhu and his associate on September 22, 1999.

The families of the victims took the case to the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which found Sidhu guilty and sentenced him to three years in prison in 2006. Sidhu then appealed to the Supreme Court, appealing the order.

On December 27, 1988, Sidhu allegedly stomped on Gurnam Singh’s head, killing him.
