The hearing on bail application of Bholath Congress MLA Sukhpal Khaira was put off again for tomorrow by the court of Kapurthala JMIC Supreet Kaur.
The hearing was put off for the second time since January 9 as the police again failed to produce the record of the case. The public prosecutor had expressed inability to argue the matter since the police did not come with the record.
Khaira had been booked on January 4 at Subhanpur police station under Sections 195 A (threatening a person to give false evidence) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC. The FIR had been lodged on the application moved by Ranjit Kaur, wife of Kashmir Singh, resident of Dogranwala village, Kapurthala, for threatening her to coerce her husband to withdraw his statement in the 2015 drug case. Khaira is in judicial custody after a day’s remand.
