Chandigarh: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) probing the drug smuggling case against Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader and former minister Bikram Singh Majithia has been reconstituted.

The SIT will now be headed by Patiala range IGP M S Chhina in place of Vigilance Bureau Director Rahul S.

The remaining members of the SIT, including AIG-rank officers Ranjit Singh Dhillon, Raghbir Singh (DSP STF Rupnagar) and Amarpreet Singh (DSP Kharar-2), will remain the same.

In the drug cases, the challan has not been presented so far and the government was facing criticism.

A case was registered against Majithia in December 2021 for allegedly helping drug smugglers.

Majithia had claimed innocence, saying the police had nothing against him and could not produce the challan. He had sought quashing of the case, saying the government was neither presenting the challan in the court nor quashing the case.

Majithia had said that it was a conspiracy of the government to keep the case pending.
