3 SIKHS SENTENCED TO LIFE AND MAKHAN SINGH RECEIVES ONE YEAR SENTENCE AND 1000 Rs FINE IN THE LILLY SHARMA CASE

On 9th May 2014, Mithu Singh, Dr Shinda and Daljit Singh Tainee were sentenced to life in the murder case of Dera Sirsa cult member, Lilly Sharma. Daljit Singh Bittu was among ten others who were acquitted in the same case. About a month after the charges were first registered in 2009, Makhan Singh (see photo) was framed under the Arms Act under different charges, but the judge filed this case along with the Lilly Sharma case without any questioning or procedure being followed. It is under the Arms Act case that Makhan Singh has received a one year sentence and a 1000 Rs fine. An appeal has been lodged with the High Court.
