Sidhu Moosewala Murder: Lawrence Bishnoi Is The Mastermind Says Delhi Police

On Wednesday, the Delhi Police said that gangster Lawrence Bishnoi who is currently under the Delhi Police custody, is the mastermind behind Punjabi singer-turned-politician Sidhu Moosewala’s murder. A close associate of Bishnoi, who was the main shooter in the killing of Sidhu Moosewala, was arrested from Punjab’s Mansa district last month. As of now, the Delhi Police has not revealed the ulterior motive behind the killing of the popular singer Sidhu Moosewala and how Lawrence Bishnoi executed the crime despite being lodged in the Tihar Jail in Delhi. The Special Commissioner of Police (Special Cell) HS Dhaliwal said that they have identified 5 more people who are involved in the murder case. Lawrence Bishnoi’s cousin Sachin Bishnoi’s name has also appeared in the murder case of Sidhu Moosewala. Mahakal, a close ally of the main shooter of Moosewala’s killing, is under the Maharashtra Police custody and used to commit crimes in coordination with the main shooter of the Punjabi singer and Lawrence. After Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district, Canadian-based gangster Goldy Brar took to Facebook and claimed that he, along with Lawrence Bishnoi, have killed the Punjabi singer to take revenge for the killing of Akali Dal youth leader Vikramjit Singh alias Vicky Middukhera on August 7, 2021. The officials said that initially, Lawrence was very uncooperative and did not reveal the name of his gang members. However, during interrogation, he accepted that he had a rivalry with Sidhu Moosewala and that his gang members killed the Punjabi singer. “He has revealed that Goldy Brar was one of the gang members who conspired and executed the killing of Moosewala but has not yet disclosed the names of other associates who were the real conspirators and executioners of the killing,” stated a Delhi Police official.
