Deepak Mundi, the primary gunman in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case, and his two accomplices were transferred to Mansa, Punjab, according to officials on Sunday.

Nepal Police on Saturday detained the main suspect, Deepak Mundi, as well as his two friends, Kapil Pandit and Rajinder.

Near the border between West Bengal and Nepal, the arrests were made.

According to authorities, “all three will be detained in the CIA police station in Mansa.”

Deepak, who opened fire in the event, had logistical help from the other two people who were also detained, according to Gaurav Yadav, DGP Punjab Police.

Deepak was the shooter in the Bolero module, while Kapil Pandit and Rajinder provided logistical support, including weapons and hideouts, according to the DGP. “Deepak, Kapil Pandit, and Rajinder were arrested today by the Anti-Gangster Task Force team at the WB-Nepal border in the culmination of an intelligence-based operation,” the DGP said.

On May 29, intruders shot and killed Sidhu Moose Wala in Punjab’s Mansa district’s Jawaharke village. A day after the Punjab police removed his protection, along with 424 others, the event happened.

Two suspects, one from Kenya and the other from Azerbaijan, were detained earlier this month in connection with the slaying of Punjabi artist Sidhu Moose Wala, and India has been in regular contact with the local police.
