As per documents accessed by the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) the Supreme Court of India (SCI) has installed stay on proceedings of Special NIA court Mohali in cases numbers Case Nos. SC/70/2018 (RC-18/2017/NIA/DLI), SC/76/2018 (RC-22/2017 /NIA/DLI), SC/77/2018 (RC-27/2017/NIA/DLI), SC/78/2018 (RC25/2017/NIA/DLI), SC/79/2018 (RC-23/2017/NIA/DLI) and SC/ 88/2018 (RC-26/2017/NIA/DLI) against Jagtar Singh Johal and others.

It is pertinent to mention here that it is the same plea that was referred in an earlier news by the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) while reporting that the NIA was seeking jail transfer of Jagtar Singh Johal and others to the Tihar Jail in Delhi.

Today, during further scrutiny of the available information it was found that the NIA is trying to get the trails of cases of Jagtar Singh Jaggi and others transferred out of Punjab. It is suspected the the NIA may be seeking to get their cases transferred to Delhi as earlier the NIA had requested the Special NIA court Mohali to transfer them to the Tihar Jail in Delhi but finding no merit in its request the NIA Special court Mohali had dismissed NIA’s plea.

Defence counsel of Ramandeep Singh Bagga, Ramandeep Singh Shera and other arrested persons Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur they have not yet received not received any notice in this regard. He said that if they receive the notice in this regard the defence will strongly oppose the NIA’s plea in the Supreme Court of India.

He maintained that the Indian investigative agency is trying to crease unnecessary hype and cause unnecessary harassment to arrested persons and their families in the case by making such moves.
