A senior police officer stated on Friday that the Delhi Police has identified six gunmen who were allegedly involved in the murder of famed Punjabi musician Sidhu Moosewala.

According to H S Dhaliwal, Special Commissioner of Police, Special Cell, the singer’s death was a planned and audacious assassination.

During the press conference, he stated that the police had released eight photos of the suspects and that six of the shooters had been identified.

Four of them have been identified as having played a part in the murder.

The mastermind behind the murder, according to the Delhi Police, was mobster Lawrence Bishnoi.

Under the Maharashtra Control of Organized Crime Act, Siddhesh Hiraman Kamle, alias Mahakal, was detained earlier this week in Pune in a joint operation with the Maharashtra Police.

During a joint questioning by the Special Cell and Maharashtra Police, it was discovered that Mahakal supplied two Maharashtra module shooters to the primary perpetrator—Santosh Jadhav and Navnath Suryavanshi—for Rs 3,50,000 apiece. According to Dhaliwal, Mahakal was paid Rs 50,000 for introducing the gunmen to the mastermind.

Mahakal, a close accomplice of the main shooter, is being held in Maharashtra Police custody for 14 days.

Vikram Brar allegedly assisted in the planning of the shooters, according to police.
