The senior Tamil Nadu leader was found guilty under section 124 A (sedition) also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000, reports said.

MDMK chief Vaiko was on Friday sentenced to one year in jail by a special court in Tamil Nadu’s Chennai in connection with a sedition case filed against him in 2009 by the DMK government in the southern state.

Judge J Shanthi held the senior Tamil Nadu leader guilty of sedition under section 124 A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000.

Vaiko, who was present in the court, said he never sought any leniency.

A petition was filed to suspend the conviction enabling an appeal against the order. The conviction and sentence then stayed for a month.

Police had registered a case under section 124(A) against Vaiko for the speech he made while releasing his book Naan Kutram Sattugiren or I am Making the Accusation) in 2009. Source : ht
