Sukhpal Khaira

CHANDIGARH: In a significant development regarding the case involving Congress MLA Sukhpal Singh Khaira, the High Court conducted a hearing today, reserving its decision following arguments from both parties. Concurrently, a startling revelation has emerged, suggesting that Khaira allegedly received drug money, implicating him in illicit financial transactions. The information stems from undisclosed sources and indicates that a known drug smuggler, Gurdev Singh, funneled drug proceeds to the MLA.

Sources have revealed that Sukhpal Khaira, Gurdev Singh, and Khaira's personal assistant, Manish Singh, were purportedly involved in the drug-related operations. Additionally, it has come to light that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is meticulously preparing an 80-page report concerning Sukhpal Khaira's involvement in the case, with further actions set to be taken based on its findings.

The Special Investigation Team (SIT) is actively scrutinizing the ED report, uncovering more details regarding the alleged drug network. The investigation has unveiled multiple instances of Gurdev Singh and his wife, Charanjit Kaur, visiting Sukhpal Khaira. It has been noted that Khaira's reported income in 2014 was relatively low, while his expenditures during the following year were significantly higher. Both the ED and SIT are delving into these financial aspects as part of their comprehensive investigation into the matter.
