Drugs case: Days after the Mohali court denied anticipatory bail to Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia, the latter has filed an anticipatory bail plea in Punjab and Haryana High Court.

It may be recalled that the SAD leader Bikram Singh Majithia, who was booked under Sections 25, 27-A, and 29 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act by the Punjab Police, had applied for anticipatory bail at the Mohali District Courts on Thursday (December 23).

However, the court had denied anticipatory bail to the SAD leader. The bail application was filed on the basis that the case was a “poll plank”.

The SAD leader had alleged that the Congress-led government had left no stone unturned to misuse its powers and position for wreaking vengeance upon its political opponents.

Earlier, the Punjab Police had asked the Union Home Ministry to issue a lookout notice against former SAD minister Bikram Singh Majithia who has been booked in the drugs case. Likewise, the MHA had issued LOC against him.

Meanwhile, Shiromani Akali Dal has alleged that the Punjab government is resorting to "political vendetta".

On the FIR against Majithia, the SAD president Sukhbir Singh Badal said the party accepts the challenge, adding that "We will fight legal battles, we are not afraid."

"The SAD is not afraid of being implicated in false cases. All such cases will be investigated if the SAD was voted to power in Punjab. Action will be taken against the guilty officials," he said.
