HC to take up Bishnoi plea today
The petition would come up for hearing on Thursday. Bishnoi has also impleaded the Punjab government as well as the DGP Prison of Delhi as respondent parties.
In his plea before the Delhi high court, the gangster had voiced the fear that he may be eliminated in a fake encounter by the Punjab police due to political unrest between political parties in the state.
Soon after the murder of Moose Wala, the name of Bishnoi had surfaced in his killing.
