The High Court, however, upheld the sentence awarded to the Pakistani national under Foreigners’ Act that entails three years imprisonment, and the Muzaffarnagar resident under Arms Act and Foreigners’ Act for which he was sentenced to three years and two years, respectively.
The High Court, while hearing a PIL, had said that “in the event, any caste certificates are issued pursuant to the order impugned, those certificates shall be subject to the outcome of the writ petition”.
