The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has procured a one-day remand of drug peddler Jagdish Singh Bhola in the drug haul case of Fatehgarh Sahib from a local court here on Thursday.


The ED will take him to Chandigarh on a one-day production warrant to carry out investigation into the multi-crore drug business.

The Fatehgarh Sahib police had busted the drug racket worth Rs 484 crore on March 3 last year.
Bhola was presented before the district and sessions court amid heavy security.

According to information, the ED authorities had demanded a seven-day remand but got it only for a day.
Sources said the ED would focus on his property details and how he managed to comprehensively do transactions of huge amounts.

The Patiala police have already attached Bhola's properties worth Rs 80 crore.

The Jalandhar police had also come to obtain Bhola's remand in another case, but had to leave empty-handed.

Meanwhile, Bhola again demanded a CBI inquiry into the case, but refused to name any more politicians.
