A Sikh man has received a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to the bombing of an Air India jet in 1985, which killed all the passengers on board.
Inderjit Singh Reyat – who has British and Canadian citizenship – was charged by a Canadian court with 329 counts of manslaughter – one for each of the people who died in the blast.
Two other men also stand accused in connection with the bombing.
The sentencing came as a surprise, although prosecution lawyers say they now concede that Reyat’s role in the bombing was relatively small.
Reyat, a former worker at Jaguar’s UK car plant in Coventry, stood but said nothing as his punishment was read out in court.
If I ever need a lawyer, I am calling this guy.
