Chandigarh:

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday granted bail to former minister Bikram Singh Majithia in the Narcotics Case (NDPS). The Court has observed that there is sufficient ground to hold that the petitioner has not committed the offense under FIR No. 02 of 2021, nor is there any likelihood of such offense being committed by him on bail.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Wednesday granted bail to Shiromani Akali Dal leader Bikram Singh Majithia in a drug case. Arshdeep Singh Kler, a lawyer for Majithia, told that the division bench of Justice MS Ramachandra Rao and Justice Sureshwar Thakur has given this decision.

Bikram Majithia surrendered after the state assembly elections on February 20. He is currently lodged in Patiala Jail. On July 29, the division bench had reserved the verdict on Majithia’s bail plea.

Majithia had on May 23 moved the High Court seeking bail in the case registered against him under various sections of the Narcotic Drug Psychotropic Substances (NDPS) Act in December 2021.

A case was registered against former minister Majithia under the NDPS Act on December 20 last year during the Congress government.

Majithia is the brother-in-law of Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) chief Sukhbir Singh Badal and brother of former Union minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal. He had said in his bail plea that this FIR was lodged with the malicious intent to target him.

The SAD leader said that the previous Congress government in Punjab “leaved no stone unturned in abusing power to take vengeance on its political opponents”.

A report was submitted in 2018 about the investigation of narcotics rackets in the state, based on which Majithia was booked under the NDPS Act.

Majithia surrendered in a Mohali court on February 24, following which his plea for regular bail was rejected by the court. Bikram Majithia had also moved the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court had directed him to move the High Court.

Bikram Majithia told NewsBust, ‘If Imran Khan offers Sidhu, he will flee to Pakistan’
