CJM, Mansa, Punjab on 15.06.2022,” said Metropolitan Magistrate Umesh Kumar of Patiala House Court in the order.
Advocate Vishal Chopra appearing for Bishnoi opposed the Punjab Police application and said that there is a security threat. There is apprehension that Bishnoi may be “eliminated” if transit remand is granted, he informed
