A Mohali Court has remanded former Punjab Health Minister Dr. Vijay Singla to police custody till 27th of this month. He was produced in the court following his arrest by anti-corruption wing of Punjab police.
Earlier in the day, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann has dropped Health Minister Singla from his Cabinet over corruption charges leveled against him. Revealing the corruption charges against Mr Singla, the Chief Minister has recommended the Police register a case against him.
The Chief Minister said, he has taken the decision after knowing that the Minister was allegedly demanding one percent commission for tenders. In a video message, he claimed that Mr Singla has admitted his wrongdoings.
