After hearing both sides, the judicial magistrate (first class) PT Gote, on December 6, convicted Shaikh for offences under sections 279, 337 of the Indian Penal Code and section 184 (driving dangerously) of the Motor Vehicle Act. 
However, as he is a student with no previous criminal record, the court ordered to release him on Rs 10,000 good behaviour bond for one year, under the Probation of Offenders Act.
