Hoshiarpur, July 21: After the remand of Lawrence Bishnoi ended, the gangster was produced before the Hoshiarpur court on Thursday. The Court has granted Lawrence Bishnoi's transit remand to Muktsar Police.

Lawrence Bishnoi was produced in the Hoshiarpur court at 8:30 a.m amid security arrangements. A heavy police force was deployed outside the Court and police officers equipped with modern weaponry were stationed everywhere.

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.

Meanwhile, the gangster will be produced before Amritsar Court later in the day.
