The Delhi High Court will on Tuesday hear a petition filed by gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, seeking enhancement of his security, in the wake of murder of acclaimed singer Sidhu Moose Wala, apprehending fake encounter by Punjab Police.
The petition submitted that there was a possibility of a fake encounter of Lawrence Bishnoi by Punjab Police, after the latter alleged involvement of Bishnoi in the murder of Moose Wala.
The petitioner also mentioned the possibility of a rival gang trying to kill him.
The petitioner said that at present, his custody should not be given to either Punjab police, or police of any other state.
The petition further said that police of other states can also interrogate him in Tihar jail, where he is currently lodged, under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act.
If he has to be produced in the court of another state, then he can also be produced through video-conferencing, added the plea.
According to Vishal Chopra, lawyer for Bishnoi, the Delhi Police Special Cell had registered a case against Lawrence, Kala Jathedi, Kala Rana and Sampat Nehra under MCOCA, which has been going on for the past one year.
