"It was not the fault of the accused due to which the victim died," said RS Cheema in the courtroom and narrated the whole scenario.
The arguments in the road rage case, which involved Sindu remained inconclusive today and will continue on Wednesday.
A two-judge bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Justice Jasti Chelameswar and also comprising Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul, was hearing the submissions made by the Sidhu's lawyer, RS Cheema on the case.
Sidhu's advocate argued that it was not his client fault behind the death of the victim and narrated the whole scenario to both the judges.
The trial court had acquitted Sidhu, whereas the Punjab and Haryana High Court reversed his acquittal, convicting him under Section 304 Part II, Indian Penal Code (IPC), for culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
However, the Punjab government appealed to the apex court to uphold three-year imprisonment. (ANI)
