District sessions judge SK Aggarwal on Monday awarded two-year sentence to a drug addict for “committing thefts habitually”.

The court has also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on the convict, Nizamuddin (32), a resident of Milk Colony, Dhanas.

The police said three cases of motorcycle theft and one case of chain snatching were registered against Nizamuddin.

He has also been convicted and awarded seven-year jail for culpable homicide not amounting to murder and was on bail when he was arrested on May 3 for theft of a motorcycle on April 24 this year.

He was arrested on the complaint of Surinder Singh, a resident of Yamunanagar, who worked in a shop in Sector 22. His motorcycle was stolen from market.

Following their investigations, the police had arrested Nizamuddin.

The police records revealed that there are total of 11 cases in which Nizamuddin was named as accused. He has already been convicted in seven cases after he admitted his guilt.

He was awarded one-year jail last week in a theft case last week. Two cases are pending against him.
