1988 road rage case against Sidhu
Sidhu, who is now prisoner number 241383, is placed in barrack number 7 in Patiala jail. He was sentenced to one year of rigorous imprisonment in a 1988 road rage case. On December 27, 1988, Sidhu got into an argument with Gurnam Singh, a resident of Patiala, over a parking spot. Sidhu, and his associate Rupinder Singh Sandhu allegedly dragged him out of his car and beat him after which he passed away.
In 1999, a sessions court in Patiala acquitted Sidhu and his associate citing a lack of evidence and giving the benefit of the doubt. Later, the Punjab and Haryana High court convicted Sidhu in 2006 of culpable homicide and sentenced him to three years in jail. In 2018, Sidhu was let off with a meagre fine of Rs 1,000. The recent review plea was filed by the family members of 65-year-old Gurnam Singh, who had died in the road rage incident involving Sidhu.
