The father of late Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moosewala, Balkaur Singh, on Sunday lashed out at the Punjab government over the prevailing law and order situation in the state when he questioned why Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had to replace 40 security guards for his wife if so is. awesome.
“If the law and order situation in Punjab was so good, why did CM Bhagwant Mann depute 40 security guards for his wife?” said Balkaur Singh in Mansa.
He further accused the Mann government of “protecting” the state’s mobsters.
“I will visit the Thar area where Sidhu was killed, with his photo, so that the government will be ashamed of the prevailing state of affairs,” Singh added.
Sidhu Moosewala, 28, was shot dead in Mansa on May 29, a day after the state government curtailed its security cover.
The Punjabi singer was shot at close range and pronounced dead on arrival at Mansa Civil Hospital.
The assailants fired more than 30 shots at Moosewala, who was found slumped in the driver’s seat by locals.
The investigation suggested that Lawrence Bishnoi was the mastermind of the daylight murder. His close assistant Goldy Brar, who is reportedly based in Canada, was also under investigation in this case. The police have issued a Red Corner Notice against Brar through Interpol.
The incident occurred two days after the Punjab Police pulled security cover from 424 individuals, including that of Moosewala.
Moosewala had fought an election from Mansa on a Congress ticket in the last parliamentary election but was defeated by AAP’s Vijay Singla.
On November 23, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) arrested Bishnoi in a case related to the alleged conspiracy to recruit youths to carry out terror attacks in Delhi and other parts of the country.
