In connection with Vicky's murder, the Delhi Police had detained approximately a dozen miscreants from this five-member group.

The death of Punjabi artist Sidhu Moose Wala may have been linked to the assassination of Vikramjit alias Vicky Middukhera, according to Delhi Police.

Both Moose Wala and his manager were allegedly engaged in the murder of Vicky in August of last year, according to the Delhi police special cell. The relationship of infamous mobster Neeraj Bawania and Tillu Tajpuria was recently discovered by the Special Cell of Delhi Police. Bawania and Tajpuria teamed up with Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Uttar Pradesh, and Rajasthan criminals Kaushal Chaudhary, Davinder Bhambia, and Lucky Patial.

In connection with Vicky’s murder, the Delhi Police had detained approximately a dozen miscreants from this five-member group.

Sharpshooter Sajjan Singh alias Bholu, Anil Kumar alias Lath, and Ajay Kumar alias Sunny Kaushal were apprehended. During questioning, the detained three stated that a Moose Wala and his manager were involved in the Vicky murder case.

According to sources, Vicky was a close buddy of mobster Lawrence Bishnoi, who has been spending time in a Rajasthan jail since 2017 for several offences.

Gangster Bishnoi has claimed responsibility for the murder of musician Moose Wala in a post on his bogus Facebook page.

Punjab Director-General of Police VK Bhawra revealed on Sunday that Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang was involved in the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala.

According to the Punjab DGP, a special investigation team (SIT) has been formed to look into the matter. Moose Wala had a special bulletproof car and two police commandos, according to Bhawra, but they were not with him when he was fired at.

Addressing a press conference, Punjab DGP had said, “Lawrence Bishnoi gang is involved in this murder. Lucky, a member of the gang has taken responsibility from Canada. Three weapons were used.”

“He had four commandos from Punjab Police out of which two were taken back but he was having two commandos which Moose Wala didn’t take along with him today. Sidhu Moose Wala had a private bulletproof car that he didn’t take with him,” he had added.

“After leaving his home, when Sidhu Moose Wala was driving his car along with two others in Mansa district, two cars came from front and firing took place. He was injured and was taken to hospital where he was brought dead. It seems like an inter-gang rivalry. On the orders of the Chief Minister, the Inspector General range has been directed to form a Special Investigation Team. SSP Mansa and SSP Bathinda have been deployed there. ADG law and order has mobilised additional forces,” Bhawra had said.

Moose Wala, who was shot at in Punjab’s Mansa on Sunday, was brought dead to the hospital, said Dr Ranjeet Rai, Civil Surgeon, Mansa Hospital.

The incident took place a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police among 424 others.

Notably, the singer had joined the Congress party last year in December ahead of the Assembly elections.
