During his appearance in court in relation with drug cases, Jagdish Singh Bhola said that he has been directed by police to not to speak to media.

He made these remarks when some media people asked him about who he feared was after his life, as he had alleged through a legal notice. Bhola kept mum and said that he had been asked by the police not to speak to the media.

Apart from Bhola, Manjinder Singh Bittu Aulukh, Varinder Raja and Sukhjit Singh Sukha were also produced in court, which extended their judicial custody till February 6.

While Bhola kept mum, Bittu Aulukh demanded a CBI probe in the case. He said that he has been wrongly framed by the police in the case, and there is need to hand over the probe to CBI for a fair investigation.

Enforcement directorate (ED) on Friday failed to present arguments to counter the bail application of Bhola and the other accused, who were arrested in regard to a Rs 6000 crore drug racket case.

This is for the second consecutive time that ED has failed to produce a valid argument in court.

ED deputy director Gurnam Singh said that the agency could not proceed with arguments as their counsel is unwell and had failed to report to court.

The court has now fixed February 7 as the next date of hearing and also directed ED to conclude arguments on bail application of Bhola.
