He was brought here on transit remand from Mansa on June 28.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (law and order) Palwinder Singh Bhandal said Bishnoi was in custody till July 6 and the local court had extended his custody for next five days.

Hours after getting his eight-day remand from a local court on June 28, the Amritsar Commissionerate police had shifted Bishnoi back to Kharar’s Crime Investigation Agency office, where he was earlier being interrogated in Moosewala’s murder.

“Bishnoi’s remand was still required in connection with his suspected involvement in the case of Rana Kandowalia,” he said.
