Sidhu Moose Wala Updates: Punjab Police Chief on Death of Sidhu Moose Wala
Killing of singer Sidhu Moosewala appears to be result of gang rivalry, says Punjab police chief
Congress leader and Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was gunned down today in Mansa district. Two other people were injured in the shooting. The incident took place a day after Punjab withdrew security from 424 people including Moose Wala. The security blanket has been removed as part of the government’s Bhagwant Mann exercise to crack down on VIP culture. The attack took place as Moose Wala and two of his friends were driving a jeep towards the village of Jawahar Ke in Punjab. Punjab Police said the attack appeared to be due to a gang war. Police also said Canadian-based mobster Goldy Brar claimed responsibility for the attack.
After leaving his home as Sidhu Moose Wala was driving his car with two others in Mansa district, 2 cars came from the front and shooting took place. He was injured and was taken to hospital where he was taken dead. Sounds like a gang rivalry: VK Bhawra, DGP, Punjab pic.twitter.com/HsEPQYHDPo

The murder of Siddhu Moose Wala shocked the country. This should be considered state sponsored murder. First, the security of 400 people was removed and then their names were published on social networks. It is criminal negligence.

Stunts to fake pro-popular narratives and score political brownies cost Punjab a young life.

There’s a reason the security provided to people should be based on an objective assessment of threats, not personal likes and dislikes. Nowadays, security seems to be a reward for loyalty rather than an objective decision based on needs. #moosewala

The brutal murder of Sidhu Moosewala is shocking. My deepest condolences to the bereaved family.
Law and order has completely collapsed in Punjab. Criminals are not afraid of the law. @AAPPunjab government has failed miserably. No one is safe in Punjab!
