Man sentenced till rising of court for 5 days

A Delhi court has sentenced a man till rising of court for five days for driving under the influence of alcohol, saying roads in the national Capital have become one of the most dangerous stretches due to ‘increasing instances of drunken driving and fatal accidents’.

Additional Sessions Judge Hemani Malhotra modified the trial court order, which had sent Delhi resident Amit Kumar to 10 days in jail and imposed a fine of Rs 1000, to five days till the rising of court considering the fact that he was the only bread earner of the family. ‘The impugned order qua simple imprisonment for 10 days is modified to the extent that convict shall undergo TRC (till the rising of court) for five days. Convict is directed to undergo TRC for five working days,’ the court said.

The judge ordered him to appear before it from today (Monday) till 21 November at 10 am sharp and to leave the court at 5 pm and directed the court staff to maintain his attendance record.
