The verdict for the jail term was given out by the Mumbai Sessions Court that chose to uphold the judgment of the Metropolitan Magistrate Court.He will have to remain in police custody till he is granted bail. John Abraham will appeal to the higher court for bail and that is expected to be decided at 2:45pm today (Friday).
