The lone woman minister in the Parkash Singh Badal-led government, she was forced to resign within days of being sworn-in as a minister.
However, Jagir Kaur was cleared of the charge of murdering her daughter Harpreet Kaur, 19.
Harpreet had angered her mother and other family members by secretly marrying a youth, Kamaljit Singh, who belonged to a lower caste.
Harpreet had died under mysterious circumstances in April 2000.
Owing to her clout in the state, Jagir Kaur was allowed to be shifted from Patiala jail to Kapurthala, which is in her home district, and was initially enjoying VIP status from the moment she was arrested.
She later moved the high court against her conviction.
She was the president of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC), the mini-parliament of Sikh religious affairs, in 1999-2000.
