Phagwara: Alleged drug racketeer Jagdish Singh Bhola has been sent to the custody of the Phagwara police for five days in connection with the murder of an assistant sub-inspector of police last year.  

Superintendent of Police (SP) Gursevak Singh Brar today said Bhola was brought here from Nabha jail last evening and produced before a judicial magistrate, who sent him to five-day police custody.

Brar said Bhola was wanted in connection with the murder of ASI Gurdev Singh near a restaurant on the national highway on March 31 last.

“Bhola had supplied a pistol to Rajinder Singh Mintu who had killed the ASI,” he said.
