A bench of Justices J Chelameswar and Sanjay Kishan Kaul pronounced the verdict on a cross-appeal filed by the victim's family seeking enhancement of the jail term to them. The 55-year-old cricketer-turned-politician won't go to jail and will retain his portfolio in the Punjab government. Singh was brought dead to a nearby hospital. "Awarded no sentence but fine of Rs1,000 for the offence", the bench said while pronouncing the judgment. It was claimed by the prosecution that Sidhu had even fled the scene of the crime. "Accused A1 (Navjot Singh Sidhu) had given a feisty blow to deceased Gurnam Singh leading to his death through brain haemorrhage". "I have sent a message to Rahul Gandhi ji & Priyanka Gandhi ji that my life is yours", ANI quoted the Congress minister soon after the Supreme Court acquitted Sindhu in the road rage case. However, defending his government's stance in Supreme Court, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh said they had no legal option available. He faced up to a year in jail or a fine or both.

Sidhu entered politics as well by joining Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and contested in the Indian general elections of 2014 from Amritsar seat. After the announcement of the judgement by the High Court, Sidhu had made a decision to approach the Supreme Court.
