In the recent Punjab Assembly election on Congress ticket, Moose Wala lost to Aam Aadmi Party leader Vijay Singla.
The AAP leader had been sent to judicial custody over corruption charges. Singla had also lost his seat in the state cabinet following the allegations.
The Punjab Anti-Corruption Cell arrested him on the same. He had allegedly demanded Rs 1.16-crore as bribes for allotting construction projects and a 1% commission in future contracts.
