Suspended BJP MP Babubhai Katara is to be produced in the Patiala House court today.

The Bharatiya Janta Party MP has been arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle people abroad. The racket came to light on April 18 when Katara was arrested at the airport in New Delhi while trying to fly out a woman, Paramjeet Kaur, and a 15-year-old boy Amarjeet Singh on the passports of his wife and son.

Katara, on April 28, confessed before the police that he was paid Rs 800,000 for every person he helped to go abroad illegally, with his aide and travel agents pocketing most of the money made in the deals.
