Here is why Navjot Singh Sidhu has been jailed

The former Indian cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has been sentenced to jail for one year on the charge of a road rage case that happened two decades back, in 1988. According to Indian Supremer Court, the cricketer-turned-commentator caused harm intentionally to a person named Gurnam Singh, who died as a result of the violent beating.

As per details, Sidhu was engaged in a car accident, that triggered a fight between the two parties. The heated argument let the cricketer beat the person to death. He was acquitted by a local court a year later. However, the case has not been closed yet.

The verdict was challenged in 2006 and Punjab and Haryana High court had convicted Sidhu of culpable homicide and sentenced him to three years in jail, the NDTV report said.

Furthermore, Sidhu has not been found guilty of another accusation of manslaughter that took place in 2018. As far as Sidhu’s reaction to the mishap is concerned, he simply tweeted that he will submit himself to the majesty of the law.

The former member of Punjab’s legislative assembly has a few legal alternatives left because he may only challenge the ruling once through a curative petition.
