Despite plans by supporters to greet cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu outside the jail in anticipation of the Congress leader getting a remission of his sentence on Republic Day, Sidhu was not released from the Patiala Central Jail on Thursday.
Speculations had arisen in the past few days that the politician’s case, alongside many other cases, was sent for remission, with the Congress leader possibly walking out of jail on January 26.
It may be pertinent to note that Sidhu’s exercise equipment was also moved out of the jail on Wednesday, according to media reports.
