Jungle Raj in Punjab: Khaira

Sukhpal Singh Khaira said before the arrest – This is jungle raj in Punjab, this is being done with the spirit of revenge. Because I oppose CM Bhagwant Mann, this action is being taken against me. Everyone behind me can have contact with my son.

I have 50 cases of vendetta against me.

Khaira said- There is an appeal to everyone not to worry. Even before, 50 such cases have been filed against him. I will fight comfortably, I have the strength. But look at their actions, they are arresting people from Chandigarh in a false case of old 2015. In which the Supreme Court has quashed the summons and has granted relief. Yet he is being arrested in the same case, from which nothing has been found.

What was the drug case of 2015?
