Mumbai: A sessions court on Tuesday sentenced Sahrunissa Sheikh, mother of Best Bakery case prime witness Zaheera Sheikh, to three months rigorous imprisonment (RI) for giving false evidence in the case.
Immediately after the verdict, she was taken into custody. Judge Abhay Thipsay, who had conducted the Best Bakery retrial, also fined her Rs 500.
He also observed that she was tutored and had lied before the court intentionally during the retrial of the Best Bakery case.
The trial of Zaheera and her brother Nasibullah and sister Sahira is yet to start for perjury (for giving false evidence).
