    Friday, December 1, 2006 (Chandigarh):

    Former cricketer and BJP Member of Parliament Navjot Singh Sidhu has been found guilty of culpable homocide not amounting to murder, by the Punjab & Haryana High Court.

    The quantum of the punishment will be decided on Wednesday.

    The BJP has accepted Sidhu's resignation and he is planning to move the Supreme Court to challenge the verdict.

    "For me morality and honesty are more important than any office. Hence, I have decided to resign," Sidhu said.

    "I have always stood for the truth and will continue to serve the public, will continue to fight for truth" he said.

    The district and sessions judge at Patiala had on September 22, 1999 acquitted Sidhu in a case registered under Section 304 and 34 IPC.

    Sidhu has been convicted for causing the death of a Gurnam Singh on December 27, 1988.

    Gurnam was beaten up by Sidhu and his associates in a dispute over the parking of vehicles outside the State Bank of Patiala there.<br /><br />

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
