The indictment filed yesterday by Punjab police in a court in Mansa in the murder case of Sidhu Moosewala did not specify the role of a Punjabi singer in the murder as initially speculated.

Mankirt alleged threat

  • Punjabi singer Mankirt Aulakh faced heat on social media days after Moosewala’s murder
  • Alleging threats, he had asked that his security be reinforced
  • Davinder Bambiha’s gang had sworn to avenge the murder

Days after the rapper-turned-politician’s gruesome murder, Punjabi singer Mankirt Aulakh had faced the heat on social media. He had asked the Punjab police to increase his security after he allegedly received threats from the Davinder Bambiha gang who had vowed to avenge Moosewala’s death.

Mansa Police yesterday, however, booked former Moosewala associates Kanwarpal Grewal and Jyoti Pandher, while suspecting their involvement in the murder. While Kanwarpal runs a music studio named “Folk Mafia”, Jyoti is the owner of “Jatt Life Studios”. Police would investigate the duo before filing an additional indictment, an official said.

FIR named 36 defendants

20 arrested, 8 on the run, 4 hiding abroad, two killed in encounter with police and 2 released after investigation

three brains

Lawrence Bishnoi, Goldy Brar and Jaggu Bhagwanpuria

6 shooters: Ankit Sersa, Fauji (Haryana module manager), Kashish; Jagroop Roopa & Manpreet Manu Kusa (both killed in encounter) and Deepak Mundi (on the run)

In the 1,850-page indictment filed yesterday, police said the motive for the murder was to avenge the killing of Akali Dal leader Vicky Middukhera in Mohali last year. Middukhera was an associate of arrested mobster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was named the mastermind in the case.

The name of a Shaganpreet, who was seen near Moosewala, had arisen in the Middukhera murder case as it was alleged that he harbored the killers (of Middukhera). The Lawrence Bishnoi gang had suspected that Moosewala was also involved in the murder.

According to reports, the plan to kill Moosewala was hatched by a network of gangsters housed in various prisons for several months, but the masterminds issued the “kill order” on the day (May 28) the singer’s security was pruned by the government of Punjab. He was shot dead in the village of Jawaharke in Mansa on May 29. Sources said Lawrence Bishnoi, the main conspirator, confessed to police plotting the murder in August 2021.

Speaking to The Tribune, Mansa SSP Gaurav Toora said: ‘The motive for the murder was to avenge the murder of Middukhera as the Lawrence Bishnoi gang suspected Moosewala of having played a part in it.’
