Indian actor John Abraham sent to jail

Mumbai: A Mumbai sessions court on Friday sent Bollywood star John Abraham to jail for 15 days in a rash driving case. On October 14, 2010, the Metropolitan Magistrate’s Court at Bandra convicted the 39-year-old for the incident in which two persons were injured, and sentenced him to a 15-day simple imprisonment. He was granted bail the same day. A fortnight later, the model-actor filed an appeal in the Sessions Court against the conviction. His appeal stated that “judge has misconstrued and has, without applying the principles relating to the acts of rashness and criminal negligence, convicted the applicant (Abraham)”. The incident dates back to April 8, 2006, when Abraham allegedly rammed his motorbike into a bicycle, injuring two youngsters Shyam Kasbe, 22 and 19-years-old Tanmay Majhi. Sign up for FREEUpdates.
