HC suspends Daler Mehndi’s jail sentence

Wednesday 21st September 2022 07:27 EDT

The Punjab and Haryana HC last week suspended the sentence of Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi, who is behind bars after being convicted in a human trafficking case. Justice Gurvinder Singh Gill passed these orders while allowing the plea filed by the singer against his conviction and seeking suspension of his sentence. His appeal against conviction, however, is yet to be decided by the HC. Mehndi was convicted and jailed in July this year by a Patiala court in connection with a human trafficking case. At present, Mehndi is confined in Patiala jail.
