Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who is currently lodged in Tihar Jail under the
Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), on Wednesday withdrew his petition filed before the Delhi High Court, seeking enhancement of security cover, fearing fake encounter by Punjab Police.

The Counsel for Bishnoi had earlier moved a petition before the Delhi High Court, seeking his safety in the wake of alleged involvement of Bishnoi in the murder of singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moose wala.

The Counsel had sought to ensure safety of Bishnoi before giving his custody to any other state police, including the Punjab Police and further sought a direction to both the Tihar Jail authorities and the Delhi Police, to ensure necessary safeguards.

Bishnoi’s petition is listed before Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma for hearing today.

A Delhi district court had earlier refused the plea made by Lawrence, forcing him to move the High Court.

Lawrence was arrested in connection with a case registered under the stringent provisions of MCOCA.

Renowned Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moose Wala, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29, a day after the state government curtailed his security cover.

The Counsel for Bishnoi had sought that a direction to the Central Tihar jail authorities to give prior intimation to his advocates, before giving his custody to any other state police, including Punjab police.

Bishnoi claimed that he was apprehending a fake encounter by the Punjab Police due to political unrest between different political parties.

The petition further demanded both the Delhi Police and the Tihar Jail authority to ensure that Bishnoi was duly handcuffed, shackled and videographed during the production warrant and on transit remand, if any warrant was produced by the Punjab Police.
