The Punjab Minister and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu have been relieved since 1988 case. The Supreme Court dismissed the false allegations of murder of Suthupathi in the case. But he was paid Rs. 1000 fine.

The Supreme Court on Friday ordered the Sidhu jail sentence and granted bail. The Supreme Court has dismissed the latest High Court verdict. However, Rs. 1000 fine. He was also acquitted of his friend.
