The court also imposed a fine of Rs. 1.8 lakh on the convicts in various cases and said that Rs. 1 lakh be given to the victim as compensation from the fine imposed on the convicts.

Reacting to the court order, the victim's family said that they would challenge the verdict in the high court, demanding death sentence for the convicts.

SGPC is for all India, Modi govt is with us: Badal

For long locked in intractable legal disputes over sharing of river waters and territorial claims, Punjab and Haryana are now sparring on politico-religious turf. And, the slugfest is only getting vicious and complicated by the day, raising the fears of religious frenzy that consumed Punjab in the dark 1980s. Vehemently opposed to Haryana’s move to set up a separate gurdwara panel, Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal believes that the Amritsar-based SGPC’s supremacy must be maintained at all costs. He is even ready to step down as CM, if required, to scuttle the Congress’ ‘poll-oriented’ step. On the other hand, Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh Hooda vociferously defends the passing of a law by the state assembly to form a separate gurdwara management committee. He sees no impropriety at all.
