  • A Gujarat court today sentenced Patidar quota agitation leader Hardik Patel to two years imprisonment in a case of rioting and arson in Visnagar town in Gujarat in 2015.

    Judge VP Agarwal, of the sessions court at Visnagar, held Patel and his two aides guilty under Indian Penal Code sections pertaining to rioting, arson, damage to property and unlawful assembly.

    The other 14 accused were let off by the court for want of enough evidence against them.

    Patel is one of the accused in the FIR which was filed at Visnagar in Mehsana district in July 2015, when a rally of the Patel community seeking reservation turned violent, resulting in damage to property and assault on some media persons.

    During the violent agitation, the mob had torched a car and vandalised the office of local BJP MLA Rishikesh Patel.
