Punjab police on Wednesday got seven days remand of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was produced before Chief Judicial Magistrate in Mansa court in connection with the Sidhu Moosewala murder case.

Bishnoi was on Wednesday presented before Chief Judicial Magistrate in Mansa court by Punjab Police in connection with the Punjabi singer's murder case.

The gangster was taken to Punjab after Delhi's Patiala House Court on Tuesday after Punjab Police arrested him in connection with singer Sidhu Moosewala's murder.

Advocate Vishal Chopra appearing for Lawrence Bishnoi opposed the Punjab Police application and said there was a security threat. There is apprehension that Lawrence Bishnoi may be "eliminated" if the transit remand is granted.

Bishnoi's lawyer submitted that they were not opposing virtual interrogation and investigation.

"We are just opposing his physical transit remand to Punjab. Punjab Police can arrest him in the case, if needed, but in Delhi only," he added.
