From Punjab Congress chief to Patiala jail: Navjot Singh Sidhu's twist of fate

The cricketer-turned-politician had set his eyes on Chandigarh — the highest seat of power in the state. But as fate would have it, the Punjab Congress leader now finds himself just 70km away, lodged at a prison in Patiala.
