New Delhi: A court here on Saturday sentenced, to a two year jail term, businessman's son Utsav Bhasin in the 2008 BMW hit-and-run case.


Additional District and Sessions Judge Sanjeev Kumar also imposed a fine of Rs 10 lakh for the family of the deceased and Rs 2 lakh for the injured.

On May 5, the court convicted Bhasin, 30, son of a Haryana businessman, for ramming his BMW car into a motorcycle on the Moolchand flyover in south Delhi on September 11, 2008, killing freelance journalist Anuj Singh, who was riding pillion, and injuring journalist Mrighank Srivastava, who was driving.
