Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi will be questioned, NIA will question about many conspiracies
Lawrence is lodged in Punjab jail for the murder of singer Sidhu Moosewala
Inquiries will be held regarding the conspiracies of terrorist alliances and criminal gangs
New Delhi. A Delhi court on Thursday sent gangster Lawrence Bishnoi to the custody of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) for 10 days. Bishnoi, who is lodged in Bathinda jail in connection with the murder of singer Sidhu Musewala, has been arrested by the NIA in a case related to a conspiracy hatched by terrorist groups and criminal gangs to commit violent acts and sensational crimes in different parts of the country.
Special Judge Shailendra Malik gave the direction after the agency requested that Bishnoi’s interrogation was needed to unearth the larger conspiracy. During the hearing, the court asked the agency, “What is the connection of the NIA with the Musewala murder case?” The NIA, requesting Bishnoi’s custody for 12 days, replied that the material was coming from Pakistan and that people like Musewala were the target. The agency said Bishnoi was arrested after it was found that most of the conspiracy was hatched by him from inside the jail and was being executed through an organized network of his operatives in the country and abroad.
