The Punjab Police produced Lawrence Bishnoi before the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Mansa Court early in the morning on Wednesday.

After securing his transit remand from Delhi Police, the Punjab Police produced Lawrence Bishnoi before the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Mansa where Moose Wala was shot dead on May 29 -- early in the morning on Wednesday.

On the directions of the chief minister, the Advocate General of Punjab himself appeared in Patiala House Court in Delhi and strongly demanded remand. An application was moved by the SIT investigating the Sidhu Moose Wala case to seek the permission of the court to arrest Lawrence Bishnoi, against whom the local Mansa court had already issued arrest warrants.

The plea of the Punjab Police was contested by the lawyers of the accused, Lawrence Bishnoi, on the grounds of his security in the custody of the Punjab Police, which was opposed by the Advocate General Punjab, and after hearing the contentions of both the parties, the court granted permission to arrest the accused and also gave a transit remand of the accused.

After the name of Lawrence Bishnoi gang had cropped up in connection with the killing of Sidhu Moose Wala, Lawrence Bishnoi’s lawyer had filed a petition in Delhi’s Patiala court seeking increased security for the jailed gangster. The lawyer had alleged that Lawrence Bishnoi could be killed in “fake encounter” by police, or rival gangs could launch an attack on him.
