Jharkhand assembly speaker sentenced to one-month jailMay 16th, 2012 - 4:28 pm ICT by IANS
Ranchi, May 16 (IANS) A Ranchi court Wednesday sentenced Jharkhand assembly speaker C.P. Singh to one-month jail in a seven-year-old case related to a protest against the central government’s decision to dissolve the Goa assembly in 2005.
Finding Singh guilty, the court of Judicial Magistrate Varun Mishra awarded one month simple imprisonment to him. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader was later granted bail at Rs.5,000 surety.
Singh, who was then an MLA, had burnt an effigy of Congress president Sonia Gandhi during the Shibu Soren regime (March 2-12, 2005). A case under Sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 143 (unlawful assembly) of the IPC was filed against him.
“We respect the court order and we will move higher court against the judgment,” the speaker told reporters here.
