Yograj Singh gets six months jail

November 09, 2004 17:20 IST

Former Test cricketer Yograj Singh, father of Indian batsman Yuvraj Singh, was sentenced to six-month imprisonment in a road accident case on Tuesday.

The Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class Sudeep Goel found Yograj Singh guilty of injuring a scooterist with his car in Chandigarh on July 27, 2000.

Yograj had been charged with causing grievous injury to Mulakh Raj by hitting his scooter from behind with the car he was driving.

Though the cricketer's counsel denied the charge, the prosecution said that the damaged number plate of the car of Yograj Singh was found at the spot near Palsoura barrier in the Union territory.
