In a shocking event, popular Punjabi singer and rapper Sidhu Moose Wala, who had joined the Congress before the Punjab elections, has been shot dead.
The ghastly incident happened on Sunday evening in Jawaharke village of Mansa district in Punjab.
The DGP has been quoted as saying, “After leaving his home when Sidhu Moosewala was driving his car along with two others in Mansa district, 2 cars came from front & firing took place.”
“He was injured & was taken to hospital where he was brought dead. It seems like an inter-gang rivalry.”
The incident took place a day after Punjab withdrew the security of 424 people, including Moose Wala.
This step was taken as part of the Bhagwant Mann government’s exercise to crack down on VIP culture.
Moose Wala’s father, Balkaur Singh filed an FIR to the Punjab Police.
In it, he revealed that his son had been getting threats from several gangsters from the Lawrence Bishnoi gang over the phone.
What is the Lawrence Bishnoi connection?
A Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar has taken the responsibility for the murder.
“Today, Moosewala was killed in Punjab, I, Sachin Bishnoi, Lawrence Bishnoi take the responsibility. It’s our work.”
“Moosewala’s name surfaced in our brother Vikramjit Singh Middukhera and Gurlal Brar’s murder, but the Punjab Police did not take any action against him.”
“We also came to know that Moosewala was also involved in the encounter of our associate Ankit Bhadu. Moosewala was working against us.”
“Delhi Police had taken his name but Moosewala used his political power and saved his skin each time,” Goldy wrote on his social media post, explaining the rationale behind the killing.
Vikramjit Singh Middukhera, a Youth Akali Dal leader was shot dead on August 7, 2021.
There were allegations that Moosewala had directed his manager Shagunpreet Singh to execute the killing.
Moosewala had been the target of the Brar and Bishnoi gang ever since.
Condolences to the family and we hope this circle of violence ends soon.
