ED to question Majithia in drug racket case on Dec 26

Congress demands CBI inquiry after the ED sent summons to Majithia in drug racket case

North Gazette News/Chandigarh
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) would question Punjab Revenue Minister Bikram Singh Majithia in drug racket case on December 26.

As per reports, the ED had sent summons to Majithia in multi million drug racket case and had asked him to appear before its Jalandhar office on December 26 at 11 am.

Media reports say that the ED had prepared a detailed questionnaire to question Majithia in drug racket case for his alleged links with Indian and NRI drug peddlers involved in smuggling of drugs.

Meanwhile, Punjab Congress chief Pratap Singh Bajwa called for an inquiry and said that the ED can only interrogate Majithia in money laundering and not in drug racket case.

“The ED can only question him for money laundering case and not about more serious charge of aiding and abetting drug peddlers,” Bajwa said.

Bajwa added that this can only be done by CBI as it was the nodal agency for Interpol and till the time India’s premier agency start investigating the case, the real culprits behind drug trafficking case could not be brought to justice.
