A man held guilty of driving his bike in a drunken state has been ordered by a Delhi court to perform community service at a city temple once a week for two months.

The court released southwest Delhi resident Raj Kumar on probation to serve at Mata Katyayni Devi Mandir at Chhattarpur every Friday for two months. The judge set aside the five-day jail term given to him by a magisterial court.

The order came on Kumar’s plea challenging the magistrate court’s order on August 24, sentencing him to five days in jail for driving his motorcycle in an inebriated state early this year in southwest Delhi. The trial court had also imposed a fine of Rs. 3,500 on him.
