A court here has further remanded dismissed Punjab police DSP and drug lord Jagdish Singh Bhola and three others in police custody till December 9. The police have also obtained a search warrant from the court to conduct a raid at an industrial unit.


Bhola, along with others, was presented in the court on Friday under tight security arrangements after the expiry of his police remand.

The prosecution told the court that following the interrogation of Bhola, the police recovered 5kg pseudoephedrine and half a kg narcotic powder from a place on the Nabha Road, which was hidden by Bhola.

Delhi-based drug racket kingpin Dev Behl and his associates Rakesh Tinku of Subhash Nagar, New Delhi, and Behl's driver Mohinder Singh, who was arrested by the Punjab police recently, were also presented in the same court.

The prosecution told the court that the police had unearthed a multi-crore international synthetic drug racket after their arrest. They were smuggling drugs to Canada.
