CHANDIGARH: The Preven­tion of Money Laun­der­ing Act (PMLA) court here has taken a strong note of the al­leged mis­be­haviour by the sec­re­tary, Re­gional Trans­port Au­thor­ity, Lud­hi­ana, Love­jeet Kaur Kalsi, with an en­force­ment direc­torate (ED) of­fi­cer.

The spe­cial court is­sued a show-cause no­tice to Kalsi, ask­ing as to why ac­tion should not be taken against her for mis­be­hav­ing with the of­fi­cer who had gone to her of­fice to serve war­rants is­sued by the CBI court, Mo­hali. Kalsi in­stead of com­ply­ing with the court di­rec­tive, did not even bother to re­ceive the bail­able war­rants and al­legedly told the ED of­fi­cer to leave the of­fice.

The CBI court had sought de­tails of some ve­hi­cles with van­ity num­bers from the RTA, be­long­ing to one of the ac­cused in the Jagdish Bhola drug racket case, Jagjit Singh Cha­hal.

The PMLA court is­sued Kalsi the no­tice for De­cem­ber 8 (Satur­day), and asked RTA clerk Amardeep Singh, who ap­peared be­fore the court on Fri­day, to serve the no­tice to Kalsi to­day it­self.

Sources said ED of­fi­cial Satesh Raina had gone to serve the bail­able war­rants to Kalsi on Thurs­day and she not only re­fused to re­ceive it but also mis­be­haved with him.

Fol­low­ing this, the ED placed on record that Kalsi mis­be­haved with the of­fi­cer and sought pe­nal ac­tion against her.

In re­sponse, the court is­sued a no­tice to Kalsi for Satur­day, ask­ing her to ex­plain why ac­tion should not be taken against for mis­be­hav­ing with the of­fi­cer.

In the Jagdish Bhola drug racket case, the CBI court has al­ready framed charges un­der sec­tions 4 of PMLA against for­mer jails minister Sar­wan Singh Phillaur (72), for­mer CPS Av­inash Chan­der (54), Phillaur’s son Da­man­vir Singh (37), busi­ness­man Jagjit Singh Cha­hal (47), his Lud­hi­ana-based brother Paramjit Singh Cha­hal (42), In­der­jit Kaur (45), wife of Jagjit Singh Cha­hal; Davin­der Kant Sharma (49) of Una (Hi­machal Pradesh), who worked as a man­ager at Cha­hal’s drug-man­u­fac­tur­ing fac­tory in Ga­gret; Sachin Sar­dana, Sushil Ku­mar Sar­dana, Kailash Sar­dana (wife of Sushil Sar­dana) and Rashmi Sar­dana (wife of Sachin Sar­dana).
