Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Bikram Singh Majithia has got a big relief from the Supreme Court. The court has stayed his arrest till February 23. Along with this, the court has asked Majithia to surrender in the concerned trial court on February 23 itself and apply for bail in the drug case. Earlier, the Punjab and Haryana High Court had rejected Majithia’s anticipatory bail plea but granted him three days’ relief from arrest so that he can challenge the order in the Supreme Court.

An FIR has been registered against Majithia under the NDPS Act. He is accused in the narcotics case. It is known that Majithia is the brother-in-law of SAD President Sukhbir Singh Badal and brother of former Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal.

Majithia had last Wednesday accused the Congress government of Punjab of trying to stop him from contesting the assembly elections. He alleged that his house was raided by the state police. Majithia appealed to the Election Commission to hold the Congress government responsible for violating the High Court’s guidelines, raiding his residence, and harassing his family.

Majithia, who was recently made an accused a drug case, made these after being fielded by the party from Amritsar-East seat. Majithia will face Punjab Congress chief Navjot Singh Sidhu in this seat.
