For creating ruckus in an inebriated condition and manhandling cops, a local court on Tuesday awarded three-month jail to a 36-yearold woman from Uzbekistan after finding him guilty under Sections 332 of the IPC and 14 of the Foreigners Act.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 2,000 on the convict, identified as Lilly, for assaulting a public servant and under the Foreigners Act.

Lilly broke down in the court room after being pronounced guilty. The woman had already spent a month in jail.

The court said, “After considering the fact that she got no family to pursue her case and she claims to have lost all her documents, she is sentenced to three months in prison.”

The UT police on May 2 this year had booked Lilly after she was found creating a ruckus in a drunken state in the parking area opposite Taj Hotel in Sector 17.

The woman also thrashed a cop and was remanded to judicial custody by the duty magistrate.

She was not able to produce her passport, following which she was booked under the Foreigners Act.

The woman was taken to the police station by sub-inspector Sarabjit Kaur.

When she was being questioned to know her antecedents, Lilly assaulted the officer. She also bit the hand of a cop.
