Sidhu has been booked under Section 304 (II), amounting to culpable homicide but not amounting to murder, and Section 323, which entails punishment for voluntarily causing harm, and will be required to pay a fine of Rs. 1,000.
As per the prosecution, the road rage case dates back to December 27, 1988, when Sidhu, in a road rage case, had punched one 65-year-old Gurnam Singh in Patiala, Punjab, subsequently resulting in the latter's death.
However, the same was challenged by the state and the victim's families before the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which had in 2006, convicted and sentenced Sidhu to three years' imprisonment.
