Sangrur, Mar 3 (UNI) A local court sentenced an advocate of Supreme Court to three-year imprisonment and fined him Rs 2000 for furnishing fake bail orders of the apex court for the release of two NDPS accused serving ten-year jail terms.

According to details, a Barnala court in 1998 had sentenced Surjit Singh and Harchan Singh to ten-year imprisonment under NDPS act.

On being approached by the relatives of the accused Arun Madan, an advocate of Supreme court, produced fake bail orders before the Barnala court and got both the accused Surjit Singh and Harcharn Singh released.

But Judge Sham Sunder of Barnala, after thoroughly reading the bail orders, got suspicious and contacted the Supreme Court. But when he inquired about the bail orders from the Supreme court, the same were found as fake.

Judge Sham Sunder ordered the then SSP Barnala to register a case against Arun Madan for cheating with the court.

After hearing the arguments yesterday, Chief Judicial Magistrate Harsh Mehta sentenced Arun Madan to three years imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs2000. In default of payment of the fine, his imprisonment will be extended three more months.
