Sukhpal Khaira sent to judicial custody

Mohali, November 18

Former MLA of Bholath and Congress leader Sukhpal Khaira sent to judicial custody in Patiala jail by a court of Mohali where he was produced by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday.

Khaira was produced before the court by the ED after completing his 7-day remand. He was arrested on November 11 in connection with an NDPS case of Fazilka district registered in 2015.

During the hearing, Khaira’s son, Mehtab Khaira and his supporters from different parts of Punjab remained present in the District Courts Complex here.

Mehtab alleged that the central agencies on the behest of BJP are trying to pressurize his father, who always speaks in the favour of farmers.
