Gulzar Singh Ranike's former personal assistant Sarbhdyal Singh, who is on the run after being named key accused in the border area funds scam, approached the Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday, seeking anticipatory bail.


Taking up his petition, the bench headed by justice Naresh Kumar Sanghi issued a notice of motion to the Punjab government to file its reply before November 20.

The Amritsar district court has already dismissed Sarbhdyal's anticipatory bail plea earlier, after which he chose to approach the high court.

In his petition, Sarbhdyal submitted that he had no role to play in encashing 12 cheques   through dummy bank accounts  which were meant for development works in the Attari assembly constituency, as alleged.

Bypoll results could impact BJP prospects in assembly elections

The outcome of the assembly bypolls held in neighbouring Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh has come as a blow to a buoyed up BJP that is harbouring dreams of forming next government in Haryana. In the BJP-ruled Rajasthan, the saffron party could win only one seat out of four and in Uttar Pradesh it could only win three out of 11 assembly seats.
