1988 road rage case: SC sentences Navjot Singh Sidhu to 1 year in prison

In a 1988 road rage case, the Supreme Court sentenced Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu to one year in prison, after he was let off with a meagre ₹1,000 fine in 2018.

On the basis of a petition filed by the family of Gurnam Singh, 65, who died in a road rage incident involving former cricketer Sidhu and his friend Rupinder Singh Sandhu, a bench of justices AM Khanwilkar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul increased Sidhu’s sentence under Section 323 of the Indian Penal Code. The maximum penalty under Section 323 of the IPC (intentionally causing harm) is a year in prison or a ₹1,000 fine.

The court is not inclined to convert Sidhu’s conviction to a more serious charge, but it accepts the plea that the Congress leader’s punishment be increased, according to the operative part of the verdict.

“We sentence the respondent to one year of solitary confinement. The bench ordered that he be taken into custody to serve out his sentence.

Gurnam Singh was allegedly beaten up by Sidhu in a road rage incident in December 1988, according to the prosecution. The victim was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

A trial court acquitted Sidhu in September 1999, but the Punjab and Haryana high court overturned the decision in December 2006. Sidhu and co-accused Sandhu were found guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder by the high court and sentenced to three years in prison.

They appealed to the Supreme Court, which found Sidhu guilty of the minor charge of causing harm while exonerating Sandhu of all charges in May 2018.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is quitting the Late Night programme.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is thinking about leaving his late-night show to devote more time to his son Billy’s continuous struggle with congenital heart problems.

This week, a number of people with knowledge of the situation disclosed that Kimmel intends to leave Jimmy Kimmel Live! after his contract expires in 2025 in order to spend more time with his wife Molly McNearney, who co-head writes the show.

Kimmel’s choice, according to Radar Online, is a result of Billy’s health issues, especially in the wake of Billy’s most recent third open-heart surgery. But now he’s a “healthy kid.”

The Late Night presenter shared the news on Instagram in late May, saying, “We went into this experience with a lot of optimism and nearly as much fear and came out with a new valve inside a happy, healthy kid.”

Sources close to Radar Online claim that the Kimmels are getting ready to step back from the spotlight. According to an informant, Jimmy and his spouse prioritise their family over notoriety. They know what to do financially, so they’re prepared to step back from the spotlight and concentrate on what matters most.

“Life is too short to waste time on a job that brings you no happiness.”

Kimmel’s spokesperson denied the findings.
Even though Kimmel’s publicist denied any talks regarding his possible resignation and called the claim “silly,” especially in light of his son’s recent surgery.

“Though they’ll likely stay busy producing and developing shows behind the scenes, their main focus will be spending precious time with their family,” an insider was quoted by Perez Hilton.

Billy’s congenital heart issue was initially made public by Kimmel in 2017, not long after Billy was born, along with the difficulties his family was facing. Billy was born with a heart condition, according to an echocardiography, a type of cardiac sonography that was performed, Kimmel disclosed on his show.

“Tetralogy of Fallot associated with pulmonary atresia.” In essence, there is a hole in the wall separating his left and right sides of the heart, and the pulmonary valve was totally obstructed.

Three days after his birth, Billy had his first successful open-heart surgery. A few months later, he had another one. Billy had his third operation last month at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This was his most recent procedure.
