On Friday, a Mohali-based Court sent Sukhpal Singh Khaira, former Punjab MLA and Congress leader into 7-day Custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a Money Laundering Case.

The Court sent Khaira into Custody who was Arrested by ED on Thursday.

The ED Arrested him and took his Custody under provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA)

The ED asked for a 13 days Custody, however, Magistrate Ranjan Kumar Khullar ordered only seven days of Custody.

The ED Officers stated before the Court that they look into the accounts of Khaira to Investigate the Case and also, to recognize the persons involved in the Case.

Adding to this, they stated that they had to record the statements of persons involved.

The Agency during the hearing also Accused Khaira of being uncooperative despite being issued Notices four times.

However, Khaira claimed to be “Innocent” and termed his Arrest as “Total Victimization.”

Also, Counsels appearing for Khaira stated that because Khaira got stay Orders from Apex Court in Drugs Case, that’s why ED filed a fresh Case against Khaira, which was against the Law.

Adding to this, the son of Sukhpal Singh Khaira, Mehtab Singh Khaira, who is also an Advocate stated, that his father has been falsely Implicated in this Case.

Mehtab Accused ED of framing this all for bringing one lakh Canadian Dollars.

Khaira will be produced in the Mohali Court on November 18 after his Remand period ends as informed by his son.
