Delhi police receive five days in jail for prison gangster Lawrence Bishnoi | Latest News India

Delhi police on Tuesday received the detention of imprisoned gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, named as a suspect in the daylight murder of the Punjabi singer-cum politician for five days. His custody is thought to have been obtained in connection with an old case.

According to sources, the special cell of the Delhi police will interrogate Bishnoi in connection with the murder of Moose Wala. Earlier in the day, Bishnoi moved the Delhi High Court after claiming a day ago that he was afraid of being killed in a false encounter by police. Later, Tihal Prison authorities said his safety had been increased.

A day ago, a lower court had rejected a petition from him regarding his fears of false encounters and his appeal that investigations against him be conducted in Tihar prison. He had also insisted that no police department be allowed to have his physical custody.
