Bholath legislator and former Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president and Bibi Jagir Kaur on Thursday move the high court for seeking permission to go abroad.
She is out on bail in a 2000 case related to the killing of her daughter, in which she was convicted of forcible abortion of victim's child, wrongful confinement, abduction, and criminal conspiracy. The high court bench of justice SS Saron and justice Ramendra Jain issued notice to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for July 13 on the application in which Bibi Jagir Kaur has submitted that she wants to visit the US and Canada for three weeks to address the Punajbi NRIs (non-resident Indians) there.
In April 2000, Harpreet Kaur, daughter of the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader, had died under mysterious circumstances. Later, a CBI inquiry based on the high court directions had found Bibi Jagir Kaur involved, and in 2012, she was sentenced on various counts, except murder. In November 2012, the high court had admitted her appeal and suspended her conviction.
