The initial request from the NIA was for 12-days custody of Lawrence Bishnoi. Additionally, the central agency requested authorisation to put handcuffs on Bishnoi while he was being held, but the court denied the request citing stringent guidelines issued by the Supreme Court of India.
Notably, in March this year, the investigating agencies had intercepted a mobile number, which belonged to the terrorists associated with the infamous terrorist organization Indian Mujahideen, which was being used in Delhi’s Tihar Jail.
The IM terrorists are accused of carrying out bomb blasts and other terrorist incidents in many places in the country. Delhi Police Special Cell got alerted when this number was intercepted. After tracing the location of this number, several other numbers related to it were intercepted and their conversations were heard, then this number was claimed by Delhi Police to be used by Lawrence Bishnoi.
At that time, Lawrence Bishnoi was lodged in Jail No.8 of Tihar. It was only after this that the NIA started cracking down on him.
NIA had searched Bishnoi’s hideouts in September as well
On September 12, large-scale raids were conducted on the bases of about 60 gangsters in North Indian states, including Lawrence Bishnoi. This raid was done after getting evidence of these gangsters having links with Khalistani terrorists as well as many other terrorist organisations. During this, dozens of places were searched in Delhi-NCR, Haryana and Punjab. All these gangsters are accused of smuggling foreign weapons and making them available to terrorists.
Bishnoi is also accused of Singer Sidhu Moose Wala murder
Lawrence Bishnoi’s name was cropped in the murder of famous Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. Deepak Tinu, who was caught by the police in this case, is the right hand of Lawrence. After this, the Punjab Police also took Lawrence on remand and at present he was lodged in Bathinda Jail in this case.

During the investigation of the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala, a hit list of Lawrence Bishnoi also came to the fore, in which besides actor Salman Khan, filmmaker Karan Johar was also on his target.
It was known that Bishnoi had got recce carried out to get Salman murdered, but before this work could be done, Lawrence’s shooter was caught by the police and this entire planning was in vain. This gang wanted to extort Rs 5 crore from Karan Johar. Vikram Brar, brother of gangster Goldie Brar, located in Canada, works hand in glove with Bishnoi.
