Additional District and Sessions Judge, Sharqi, sentenced former DIG Sai Rakhiyo to three-year imprisonment and

Rs0.1 million fine on charge of illegal occupation of 240 square yards house in Gulistan-e- Jauhar Block-7.

The court in its verdict also directed the accused to pay a rent at a rate of Rs15,000 per month from the date of illegal possession of the house.

The court cancelled the bail of the accused DIG and ordered the arrest. The court also ordered SHO Gulistan Johar to comply with the court orders.
