According to Delhi Police, the main suspect in the murder of Sidhu Moosa Wala, gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, has not yet confessed, but he has stated that the singer was killed in retaliation. He has also stated that the murder was planned and carried out by his gang, not him.
Lawrence Bishnoi, who is being held in Delhi’s Tihar jail, was released earlier this week to be questioned by police about the murder of Sidhu Moosa Wala on Sunday.
On Sunday, a group of assailants shot and killed Sidhu Moose Wala in the village of Jawahar Ke, a day after the Punjab government reduced his security. According to the autopsy, he had 19 bullet wounds and died within 15 minutes of being shot.
Lawrence Bishnoi is allegedly linked to Canadian gangster Goldy Brar, who claimed responsibility for Sidhu Moosa Wala’s murder on Facebook the same day. In his post, Brar claimed that the singer’s name came up during the investigation into the murder of an Akali Dal leader, but no action was taken against him.
According to Bishnoi, Goldy Brar discovered that Sidhu Moose Wala assisted his manager, who was linked to the August murder of Akali Dal leader Vicky Muthikheda.
“Bishnoi has been extremely uncooperative thus far. During questioning, he admitted to having a feud with Moose Wala and claimed that members of his gang murdered the singer. He has revealed that Goldy Brar was one of the gang members who plotted and carried out Moose Wala’s murder, but he has not yet revealed the identities of the actual conspirators and killers.” According to the news agency PTI, a police officer.
According to the police, Goldy Brar is being investigated for allegedly plotting multiple murders from Canada.
Despite the fact that one lived in Canada and the other was incarcerated, Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi allegedly planned murders together.
Raja Monty of London and Kala Rana, who was arrested in India in March after being extradited from Thailand, were also members of Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang. They are accused of being responsible for approximately thirty murders.
