NIA Gets Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi's Custody for 10 Days to Probe Big Conspiracy
The National Investigation Agency (NIA), probing the link between gangsters and terrorists, has got 10-day custody of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi. A 12-day custody of Bishnoi was demanded from the court by the NIA.
NIA tells the court that Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala murder case has foreign links. The court asked what do you have to do with the murder of Moose Wala?
NIA's lawyer said that the gangster is getting weapons from Pakistan, people like Moose Wala are being targeted, and the investigation is being done in this case regarding a big conspiracy.
The NIA also sought permission from the court to bring Lawrence Bishnoi with his hands tied. The court refused to allow this, saying that the Supreme Court has strict guidelines in this matter.
Now the next hearing of the case will be held on December 3 in the Special NIA Court at Patiala House.
