Former finance minister involved in Bathinda land allotment case Manpreet Badal (Manpreet Badal) has been issued summons again by vigilance. Vigilance has called Manpreet for questioning on October 31. Manpreet Badal is on interim bail in this fraud case. Earlier he was called on October 23 but did not appear due to back pain.
The PGI doctors gave him a certificate for a week’s bed rest. Which they sent to Vigilance. On the orders of the High Court, Manpreet has also submitted his passport to the Vigilance.
Manpreet’s lawyer Sukhdip Singh Bhindar said that Manpreet Singh Badal is suffering from back disease. Spinal problems cause pain due to which they are unable to walk. Now there is doubt about appearing before the vigilance when called again as Manpreet Badal’s lawyer had also appealed to the vigilance officials that they can go to his residence in Chandigarh and interrogate him.
It is worth mentioning that on September 24 Vigilance The bureau had registered a case under various sections against the former minister and his five associates for allegedly buying a 1560-yard plot with the help of BDA officials in Bathinda’s Model Town area.
In this case, the three private individuals who bid for the plot, hotel owner Rajeev Kumar, businessman Vikas Arora and Amandeep, an employee of a contractor, are now in jail after their arrest, whose bail petition has been rejected by the Bathinda court.
Apart from this, former BDA officer Bikramjit Singh Shergill and Superintendent Pankaj Kalia involved in this case are undoubtedly far from the grip of vigilance but the Bathinda court has canceled their anticipatory bail. Now their arrest warrant has been issued.
