Bureau Report: Was the arrest of Sukhpal Singh Khahri illegal or legal in the drug case in the Punjab Haryana High Court? Regarding this, a hearing was held in the High Court for 2 days, after which Justice Anup Chitkara has reserved this decision. Siddharth Luthra, a senior advocate of the Supreme Court from Delhi, appeared on behalf of the Punjab government. Advocate General of Punjab Gurminder Singh was also present with him. After hearing the cross-examination of both sides for 3 hours, the court has now reserved the decision. That is, now the court can pronounce a decision at any time. Khaira’s son Mehtab Singh Khaira said that our lawyer said that when the summons issued under Section 319 was rejected by the Supreme Court, how can you arrest. If the SIT should have taken the evidence before the court, then the court decided whether to summon or not?
Bail hearing on Monday
On October 10, when the lawyers of the Punjab government did not appear in the court, Justice Anup Chitkara asked Khaira to file a separate bail application. Khaira’s son Mehtab Singh Khaira has said that he has filed a petition for his father’s bail and it will be heard on Monday.
Sukhpal Singh Khaira was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in 2021 on charges of money laundering in a 2015 drug case. The High Court had granted him bail in the same case. In February this year, the Supreme Court rejected the summons against Khaira in the drugs case. Sukhpal Singh Khaira was saying that his arrest was wrong only through these two orders of the High Court and the Supreme Court. He said that when the biggest court of the country has decided in his favor, how can he be arrested again in the same case. Based on this, Sukhpal Singh Khaira filed a recent petition in the Punjab Haryana High Court.
However, when Sukhpal Singh Khaira was arrested, the SIT said that some evidence has come before us which has been presented in the court after which Khaira was arrested. In the same year, the Punjab government formed a three-member team under the DIG against Khaira in the drug case. The Punjab government argued that the Supreme Court has not stayed the investigation. On Tuesday, the Jalalabad court once again sent Khaira to police remand for 2 days. Now it is also coming out that the SIT has made the money laundering investigation against Khaira the basis of ED. In which it is claimed that Sarpanch Gurdev Singh, who was arrested in 2015 in a drug case, used to fund Sukhpal Singh Khaira. After Gurdev’s arrest, Sukhpal Singh Khaira used to talk to his sister several times on their PA phone.
