The court in Punjab’s Mansa district on Wednesday morning granted gangster Lawrence Bishnoi a seven-day police remand to the state police in the murder case of singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala soon after he was brought there.
The main conspirator in the killing is him.
On Wednesday morning, around 4 am, he was brought to the Mansa district, where Moose Wala was shot and killed on May 29.
He was presented to the community.
The district civil hospital conducted his medical check-up before he assumed his duties as a magistrate. After securing the police remand, the Punjab Police shifted Bishnoi to Mohali, where he will be interrogated.
Delhi’s high court allowed the Punjab Police to question the gangster in the state on Tuesday.
With all the circumstances in mind and considering the seriousness of the offences and the gravity of the allegations against Lawrence Bishnoi in the murder of singer Subhdeep Singh @ Sidhu Moose Wala, the application for transit remand is granted until June 15 with instructions to the IO to produce the accused before the concerned court of CJM, Mansa by that date,” the judge said in a four-page order.
The court also ordered Punjab police to file a compliance report before the duty magistrate in Patiala House court just after the production in Mansa court. The magistrate had issued an arrest warrant against Bishnoi on Monday in the singer’s murder case.
The police said it was also pertinent to mention that all the arrested accused were allegedly closely associated with Bishnoi and his associates, and they have been involved together in multiple FIRs.
On Tuesday, Bishnoi’s counsel contended had claimed there was a threat to his client’s life. He also repeated the claim – which was made earlier too – that Bishnoi may be killed in a fake encounter.
