The court of District and Sessions Judge Satvinder Singh on Thursday upheld the acquittal of Sukhbir.Sukhbir was present in the court.
Naresh Kumar Sehgal, a Kotkapura resident, had filed an appeal in the court, challenging Sukhbir’s earlier acquittal in the case.
He had accused Sukhbir and some of his associates of making a murderous attack on him on September 5, 1999, during the electioneering for parliamentary elections in Kotkapura.
After an appeal was filed by Sehgal, the court had started the trial in the case in May 2016.

On June 30, 2006, a case was registered against Sukhbir at the Kotkapura police station on the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court after Sehgal had approached the court.
