According to the news published in The Tribune, a notice regarding the ongoing case under the Special Judge of NIA at Mohali, Manjot Kaur, was pasted outside Nijjar’s house in the village two weeks ago.
It pertained to a hearing on the matter on September 11 over attachment of his property in a case of 2021 in which a priest, Kamaldeep Sharma, had been fired at.
