Etawah, Oct 30 (UNI) A local court today pronounced life imprisonment on former Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP) MLA Jaiveer Singh's sibling for killing the husband of party leader Sarita Bhadauria.

According to prosecution, in a broad daylight murder case Abahay Veer Singh -- husband of the BJP leader -- was shot dead on July 15, 1999.

An FIR was lodged against the then BJP MLA's brother Omveer alias Pappu Bhadauria and three others. The accused had later surrendered.
