    JALANDHAR: Enforcement Directorate Assistant Director Niranjan Singh, who was investigating synthetic drug racket case and also summoned Punjab revenue minister Bikram Singh Majithia on December 26, has been transferred to Kolkata.
    Sources in ED said that Niranjan received his transfer order on Friday evening. It is learnt that in the last couple of days local ED officials had reported to their bosses in Delhi that ED officials were being bugged and Punjab CID sleuths were also trying to know the property details of the local ED officials. Interestingly some phone numbers from which the calls were made by the CID sleuths to the ED officials were also brought into the public domain by the latter, which created embarrassing situation for the Punjab government and its intelligence wing.
    Though he had earlier summoned in the last one year former jail minister Sarwan Singh Phillaur his son Damanvir Singh, SAD Chief Parliamentary Secretary Avinash Chander and Congress MP Santokh Chaudhary but things reached to a flash point after Majithia was summoned.
    It may be recalled here that drug lord Jagdish Bhola, who was arrested by Punjab Police in 2013 in Rs 6,000 crore synthetic drug racket case, druing his questioning by ED in the first week of January last year had revealed Majithia's name which led to a political storm in the city and the ruling alliance of SAD-BJP had been facing piquant situation over the issue.
    Majithia was questioned by Niranjan, Joint Director Girish Bali and Special Director Karnal Singh who had come here from Delhi. His summoning had given a handle to Congress which started demanding his resignation. Sources in ED said that official's transfer at this juncture can further delay the investigation in the case. It may be mentioned here that even as Sarwan Singh Phillaur's son Damanvir was summoned within a few week of Bhola's statement naming him and Majithia but ED officials took around eleven months to summon Majithia on the basis of the same statement. Congress had earlier also accused ED officials of trying to save him.

    I thought BJP is now anti Siromani Akali Dal, and the alliance is in danger. Never mind, few people think like News readers.
    ...........
    This has just made sure AAP will become more stronger in Punjab.

    I hope AAP wins in Punjab. SAD, INC and BJP are equally useless.

    Not possible because AAP is trapped in delhi . I doubt whether they can make any splash in other states ....

    They choose wrong state from start ...

    IF AKJ was dreaming for PM chair then there was no need for him to leave delhi cmship and also he could have nominated other people in his party for PMship ....

    Basically AAp`s AKJ cannot see beyond himself or delhi ....

    BJP really needs to sort out the mess in Punjab and their alliance with SAD or it might turn out to be their first real defeat post LS 2014.

    Bjp should go in alone to have any chance

    Having said that sincerely hope they loose, both congis and SAD allaliance have been failures
