Chandigarh: As per media reports Punjab’s Local Bodies Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu claimed today demand immediate arrest of ex-minister Bikram Singh Majithia in the drug trade.
He said that the Special Task Force (STF), set up by Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh, had in its report found prime facie evidence against Bikram Singh Majithia in the drug trade.
As per The Tribune reports, sharing excerpts at a press conference, Sidhu said the report, prepared by IPS officer HS Sidhu, had thrown light on Majithia’s complicity with Canada-based NRIs Satpreet Satta, Amaninder Laadi and Parminder Pindi in the supply chain of pseudoephedrine, a synthetic drug.
Demanding Majthia’s immediate arrest, he said the state government could not ignore the report.
Quoting the report, Sidhu said drug operatives stayed at Majthia’s Amritsar residence and used his official vehicle and security during their Punjab visits. The minister, who was accompanied by wife Navjot Kaur Sidhu, alleged that Majithia had asked Amritsar-based businessman Jagjit Singh Chahal to supply the synthetic drug to the Canada-based NRIs, reads a note in The Tribune.
Lashing out on Arvind kejriwal’s apology Sidhu said “The AAP chief (Kejriwal) has let down people of Punjab. It is as if their (party’s) existence has been wiped out. How will their leaders now speak against drugs in Punjab?”
