The Punjab and Haryana High Court has dismissed the Punjab government's request to detain BJP leader Tajinder Singh Bagga in Haryana and ordered the Haryana government to produce an affidavit on Saturday.

During the hearing, the Haryana state counsel informed the court that the Delhi police had provided information about Tajinder Bagga's arrest. According to him, no Punjab police officers were apprehended in Haryana. The Punjab Police and the Delhi Police spoke when the Delhi Police arrived in Khanpur at 2 p.m.

The habeas corpus case filed by the State of Punjab was for its police employees, not Bagga, according to Haryana State Counsel. The state of Haryana has been ordered to provide a status report by the High Court.
