NIA silently gets five days remand of Jagtar Singh Jaggi | Until the 22nd of January

Jagtar has been taken into police remand once again. NIA officers took Jaggi from Nabha and presented him before a duty magistrate in Mohali without legal representation.

Jaggi’s lawyer was deliberately not informed of this abrupt and unscheduled “court appearance”.

In a clear sign of bias/incompetence the duty judge did not even ask why Jaggi has been presented in court without legal representation.

Jaggi has been remanded into police custody until the 22nd of January.


Scottish Sikh youth Jagtar Singh Johal (Jaggi), who was sent to the judicial custody after the last hearing, was today silently presented before the Mohali based Special NIA Court of Additional Session Judge Sanjay Agnihotri. The NIA team reportedly succeeded in securing his remand for additional five days amidst no opposition to their claims in the Court.

On being contacted by the media, Jagtar Singh Johal’s legal counsel Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur informed that he was not informed by the NIA team about Jaggi’s production before the NIA court. He claimed that he was not even aware of the fact that Jaggi has been taken out from Nabha jail on production warrants by the NIA team.

Till writing this news, it couldn’t be confirmed that in which case the NIA team got five days remand of Jagtar Singh Johal.

It may be recalled here that Jagtar Singh Johal alias Jaggi was arrested on November 4 last year in connection to serial murders occurred in Punjab. He is continuously being kept in remand since then by the Punjab police and the NIA team by adopting the tactic of getting his remand in different cases subsequently.
