Inderjit Singh Reyat, the only man convicted in the bombing of an Air India flight in 1985, was sentenced to nine years Friday as the Canadian Supreme Court rejected his bid to appeal against a perjury conviction.
The court gave no reasons for its decision, which is normal in cases where parties are seeking appeal, Vancouver Sun has reported.
Inderjit Singh was sentenced to five years in February 2003 when he pleaded guilty of his role in the Air India bombing.
In September 2003, he was called as a witness against his co-accused Ripudaman Singh Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri. On Sept. 18, 2010, Inderjit was proved of lying repeatedly during the trails.
