Hoshiarpur, July 18: The Hoshiarpur court on Monday extended the remand of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi by two days.
The Hoshiarpur police will now grill the gangster for two more days, after which he will be produced to court again on July 21.
Earlier, the Hoshiarpur police had reportedly taken Lawrence Bishnoi for questioning in the 2019 ransom case. In this case, a ransom was demanded from the liquor contractor and the trader and in case of non-receipt of ransom, the trader's house was fired upon.
Notably, the Model Town police station had filed a case in 2019 under Sections 307 and 336 of the Arms Act against unidentified individuals based on the statements of Malkit Singh, the liquor contractor's gunman.
Bishnoi's attorney, Pankaj Bedi, asserted that the gangster had nothing to do with the case that had been filed in 2019 because he was in the Bhagatgarh jail at the time.
