A court on Friday rejected the bail application of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia, who was booked under the NDPS Act by the Punjab Police.
The bail application of Majithia was dismissed by the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Sandeep Kumar Singla in Mohali.
Punjab Police had booked former Akali minister Majithia under various Sections of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act (NDPS Act).
A copy of the FIR stated that Majithia had been booked for knowingly allowing drug smuggling through the use of his property or conveyance, financing the distribution or sale of drugs and hatching a criminal conspiracy for smuggling.
He was questioned at the trial court in Mohali on Thursday about his alleged links with several high-profile peddlers.
The Special Investigation Team (SIT) led by AIG Balraj had earlier questioned Majithia . The SIT members told the court that Majithia was evasive in his replies. The SIT sought his remand, but the court gave them one hour to question Majithia in the court room only.
The SIT members asked Majithia whether he had provided support and funds to drugs smugglers.
It was alleged that Majithia had association with dismissed and convicted cop Jagdish Bhola, besides Bittu Aulakh, Parminder Singh Pindi and Satpreet Singh alias Satta among others.
