International drug smuggler Jagdish Singh alias Bhola on Thursday alleged that three Punjab ministers were involved in the drug racket busted last month.

Bhola, who was produced in the court here in connection with a case under the NDPS Act registered at the Banur police station on June 15, told reporters outside the court, "I will reveal the names only if the CBI conducts the inquiry in the case. I am just a small fry; the real kingpins are the top politicians of the state."

He denied his involvement in the crime saying he should be hanged if found guilty.

On November 11, the Punjab police arrested Bhola along with his four associates from a dhaba at Ghanaur, 12 km from Murthal, on GT Road near New Delhi and recovered synthetic drugs worth Rs 18 crore.

Bhola was the mastermind behind the Rs 700 crore synthetic drug racket exposed by the Jalandhar rural, Fatehgarh Sahib and Patiala district police and was on the run since March 3 this year when his SAS Nagar house was raided.
