Deputy Chief of the Enforcement Directorate, Niranjan Singh, who has been investigating the famous 6000 crore Bhola drug case and warned former minister Bikram Singh Majithia, resigned from his post.

Confirming his resignation, he said that there is some personal reason behind this resignation while the sources of the department have revealed that Niranjan Singh has resigned his will, while his term is up to 2021.

The case of very popular Bhola drug case in Punjab came to the headlines when the case was handed over to the Enforcement Directorate (ED).  From year 2013 onwards, Niranjan Singh was doing research on behalf of the ED. He worked as a Investigation Officer of Bhola Drug Case from 2013 to 2016. Because of his progress, he was made a deputy director and he was monitoring this investigation.

In this case, Niranjan Singh’s Investigation Officer, the former Akali-BJP government minister, Bikram Singh Majithia, was summoned in his office on December 26, 2014 and questioned him for a long time. Three weeks after the interrogation of the Akali Minister, he was transferred to Kolkata on January 16, 2015 and he was asked to investigate the Shardha Chit Fund case.

But Niranjan Singh turned towards the High Court against his transfer, where the court gave him a stay order. In November 2018, the court canceled his transfer.

Niranjan Singh was promoted by the Enforcement Directorate in 2016 by making him the Deputy Director, due to which the Bhola drug case went from his hands. He was asked to monitor the matter.

The noticeable thing is that in this case, he is the Congress parliament member Chaudhary Santokh Singh, Shromni Akali Dal MLA, Avinash Chandar, Sarvan Singh Filor, and his son Damanjit Singh, Goraya’s businessman Chunni Lal Gaba, NRI Sabha’s chief Kamaljit Singh Hare, Varender Raja, Sukha and Bittu, along with more they warned of many.
