Mohali, Bikram Singh Majithia, the leader of Shiromani Akali Dal in Punjab has suffered a major setback on Friday. A Mohali court has rejected the anticipatory bail of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia, who is facing a case under the NDPS Act. Let us inform that the Punjab State Police is looking for the SAD leader to arrest him.
Let us inform that Bikram Singh Majithia’s lawyer DS Sobti had filed an application for his bail on Thursday. On Monday, 46-year-old Majithia was booked under relevant sections of the NDPS Act on Prevention of Narcotic Drugs based on the status report of 2018 for investigation of narcotics gang. Sections 25 (punishment for permitting its use to any premises for commission of offence), 27A (sale, purchase, production, manufacture, possession, transport, use or consumption, import and export or any also for financing the act) and 29 (for abetting or conspiring to commit an offence).
It has been said in the FIR that the legal opinion of the Advocate General of Punjab has also been taken before registering it. “Based on this status report of the STF, a cognizable offense is made on the basis of the opinion of the Advocate General and hence a case is registered and investigation is carried out,” the FIR said. The FIR states that the matter will be investigated by a special investigation team, for which separate orders are being issued.
It said, all relevant aspects and evidence may be thoroughly examined and the investigation may be completed expeditiously in accordance with facts and law. The STF report pending with the High Court was based on the confessional statements made by some of the accused, including Jagjit Singh Chahal, Jagdish Singh Bhola and Maninder Singh Aulakh, in the 2013 multi-crore drug racket case submitted to the Enforcement Directorate.
