A court here on Friday sentenced a man to three years in jail for attacking a policeman with a sword in suburban Mankhurd in 2016.

Salman Khan (25), who was externed from the city for anti-social activities, was charged with kidnapping after he entered city limits to meet a girl, police said.

The kidnapping complaint was filed by the girl's father.

When police went to arrest Khan, he attacked and injured one of them with a sword, following which a case was registered under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC, as well as the Arms Act.
