Convicted top cop S.P.S. Rathore will have to spend some more time in jail now.
The hearing in the Punjab and Haryana HC on Rathore’s plea for suspending the 18-month jail sentence he got from a lower court will take place on May 31 because the CBI counsel said he did not receive a copy of the appeal petition.
Objecting to the submission made by Assistant Solicitor General of India Anmol Rattan Sidhu in this regard, Abha Rathore, wife and counsel of Rathore, said that a copy of the petition had been handed over to the CBI.
Abha made a plea before Justice Gurdev Singh for suspending the sentence but the appeal was turned down.
The case will be taken up by a vacation judge as the summer holidays start on May 31.
