DELHI : The Sidhu Moose Wala’s death has taken a new turn a day after the singer’s SUV was sprayed with bullets and he was found slumped on his seat and bleeding heavily.
The Punjabi singer and Congress leader was with two of his friends when the attack happened. The incident came a day after the state government curtailed its security cover along with more than 420 people, including former MLAs, Jathedars of two Takhts, heads of Deras, and police officers.
A day later, it has been reported that the killing of the Punjabi singer and Congress leader was a planned attack that was hatched in Delhi’s Tihar jail.
In the ongoing probe of Sidhu Moose Wala’s death, on Monday, CCTV footage emerged on social media which shows two cars trailing Sidhu Moose Wala’s vehicle moments before he was murdered.
Canada-based gangster Satinder Singh, aka Goldy Brar, has reportedly taken responsibility for the killing. In two separate posts on their purported Facebook pages, Bishnoi and Brar took responsibility for the murder of the Punjabi singer.
In the latest update it has been known that the murder plan may have been hatched in Delhi’s Tihar jail.
Officials who are aware of the situation said that a phone number in connection with the singer’s killing has been tracked back to the jail.
It has been known that a few days ago, a person called Shahrukh had been arrested by the Delhi Police on charges using a messaging app to communicate from jail with Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar, the latter being the person who claimed responsibility to Moose Wala’s death.
Further, it has been understood that Goldy Brar is part of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. This is the trail, the Delhi Police is using to connect the murder of the Congress leader, who was only 28 years old.

Late on Monday, the Punjab Police chief VK Bhawra said he never called Sidhu Moosewala a gangster or that he was affiliated with gangsters. The director general of police’s (DGP) clarification came after the slain Punjabi singer’s father Balkaur Singh wrote to Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann demanding a public apology from Bhawra for linking his son’s killing with a gang war.
