Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday filed a supplementary challan in the Patiala court against Canadian resident Sukheet Singh “Raja” in the Jagdish Bhola synthetic drug racket case.

Investigating officer Niranjan Singh, who is also ED assistant director in Jalandhar, filed the challan. Bhola, who is in jail, had bought property in the name of Raja in Punjab and other parts of the country. Most of these assets the enforcement agency has attached already. Raja, who belongs to Billi Chaur village of Shahkot in Jalandhar district originally, was settled in Canada’s Surrey city. before Patiala police arrested him in last August.

He is an accused in the main Bhola drug case registered in Fatehgarh Sahib in 2013, and wanted in another drug case filed at Focal Point in Ludhiana in 2009. The ED is likely to apply for his further custody.
