Raising questions over the acquittal of dismissed Punjab Police officer Jagdish Bhola and Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia’s aides Maninder Singh Aulakh and Jagjit Singh Chahal in a drugs case, AAP Friday accused the Badals of putting pressure on police to weaken the case.

Head of the campaign committee and AAP MP Bhagwant Mann demanded an impartial probe into the drug racket by sitting Judge of High Court.
It alleged that if Punjab Police continued to probe the racket, the accused would be acquitted in all cases pending against them.

In a joint statement issued here today, Mann and his parliamentarian colleague Prof Sadhu Singh said, “How can free and fair probe be expected from police that comes under Home Minister Sukhbir Badal, whose brother-in-law Bikram Singh Majithia was also named in the case by key accused Jagdish Bhola?”

“We have full faith in the judicial system, but court decides any case on the basis of evidence produced by police,” AAP MPs said.
Had the probe been handed over to CBI in the initial stage itself, the fate of the case against Bhola and others would have been different, said Mann while accusing PPCC chief Captain Amarinder Singh for supporting Majithia by rejecting the demand of CBI’s probe against him.
