Dehradun, November 11

Uttarakhand minister Harak Singh Rawat was sentenced to three-month jail by a court in Rudraprayag for violating the model code of conduct during the 2012 state assembly polls.

A fine of Rs 1,000 was also imposed on the minister by the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate Shahjad Ahmad Wahid.

Rawat was convicted under Section 143 (unlawful assembly) of the IPC.

However, Rawat who was present in the CJM court on Tuesday, got bail.
