The Moga police on Monday got a 10-day custody of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi from a judicial court in an attempt-to-murder case registered against him in a local police station.
Bishnoi was shifted from the court to the CIA Staff at Mehna village on the Moga-Ludhiana national highway under tight security later on.
He might again be shifted to another place, sources said.
The Moga police had earlier brought Bishnoi on production/transit warrant here on Monday, said SSP Gulneet Singh Khurana.
His medical examination was conducted at district hospital.
Bishnoi had allegedly taken a ‘supari’ and sent two gangsters Monu Dagar and Jodhajit Singh to kill a local gangster of a rival group Jatinder Kumar Neela.
Dagar came to Moga to kill Neela but missed the target in December. Monu was arrested and since then has been languishing in Faridkot jail. He was recently brought on production warrants in Sidhu Moosewala murder case.
Previous probes revealed that Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar engaged shooters of Bishnoi gang to kill Neela, for which Bishnoi was questioned, the SSP said.
