The Mumbai police personnel took drug lord Jagdish Bhola back to Mumbai by boarding a train from the Patiala railway station on Saturday. Bhola was produced at the local court on Friday in a hearing on the multi-crore drug racket case, which is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

After the hearing, Bhola was sent back to the central jail of Patiala where he spent the night. Mumbai police took Bhola's custody in a case filed against him in Mumbai.

Talking to media before boarding the train, Bhola demanded a CBI probe in the drug scam case. "There are many more involved in the case who are being shielded by the police. Actual truth will come to the fore only after a CBI probe," he said.

Pertinently, the Punjab and Haryana high court is already hearing a petition demanding CBI probe in the Bhola drug racket case. Meanwhile, on Friday, Punjab and Haryana high court granted bail to the three family members of Jagdish Bhola, including his wife Gurpreet Kaur, father-in-law Dalip Singh and mother-in-law Amarjeet Kaur.

They had submitted a bond of `75,000 each, which was accepted by the district and sessions judge Harminder Singh Madaan. The court has also asked all of them to submit their passports in the court before September 30.
