Singer Sidhu Moose Wala had connections with gangsters?
The massively popular Punjabi singer, Sidhu Moose Wala, was killed last evening when assailants fired nearly 30 rounds at him and the two men with the singer.
Sidhu Moose Wala, the Punjabi singer who glorified guns and the gangster culture in his massively popular songs, was gunned down in broad daylight on Sunday. According to the Punjab Police chief VK Bhawra, an inter-gang rivalry led to the singer’s murder.
But, if sources are to be believed, Sidhu Moose Wala had relations with the Kaushal gang of Haryana. The singer ignored phone calls he received from gangsters advising him to mend his ways, saying he too has weapons to deal with them, the sources said. The singer’s father has also told the police that Moose Wala was getting threats.
The gangsters had done a recce of the area before striking last evening, they said.
The singer’s father, Balkar Singh, has filed a complaint to the Mansa Police and Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, and demanded a public apology from the Punjab top cop for saying that Sidhu Moosewala was the target of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
But in his police complaint, Balkar Singh also stated that he noticed the movement of some vehicles near their home last evening. Sensing something was amiss, Singh immediately rushed to the spot with security guards where his son was killed.
Two gangsters of the Bishnoi gang, Goldy Brar and Sachin Thapan, who have taken responsibility for Moose Wala’s murder, claimed that Viky Midukheda was their brother and that they have avenged his death.
Members of the Bishnoi gang have also accused the Punjab Police of not taking any action against Sidhu Moose Wala, whose manager has also been accused of murdering Ankit Bhandu and Gurlal Brar.
GANGSTERS USING PUNJAB SINGERS TO EXTORT MONEY
The Amritsar Police today arrested singer Kartar Cheema on charges of extortion. He has been accused of demanding protection money from NSUI chief Akshay Sharma. The call was allegedly made by Goldy Brar.
The police last month had also arrested singer Harveer Singh Sohal on similar charges. He was allegedly demanding money on behalf of an Australian and Canada-based gang and was also close to gangster Jaipal Bhullar. Bhullar was killed in an encounter in Kolkata last year.
The gang of Harvinder Singh Rinda and Dilpreet Singh Daha was also involved in extorting Punjabi singers and actors. They demanded protection money from famous Punjabi singer Parmish Verma, who was brutally attacked when he refused to pay up.
