Mumbai: A Sessions Court on Monday sentenced a man to seven years imprisonment in an attempt to murder and robbery case filed against him 23 years ago in 1987.

According to the prosecution, accused Jitendra Singh and another man, who remains unidentified till date, went to a baker's shop in suburban Khar on June 21, 1987 with an intent to commit robbery.

There they confronted one Liyakat Ali, owner of the bakery, who refused to give them money. In the ensuing scuffle Singh pulled out a revolver and fired a round. Ali was injured.

Singh and his accomplice fled from the spot and the police were able to arrest Singh only last year.

Nine witnesses were examined in the case who identified Singh as the one who opened fire in the shop.
