Sidhu Moose Wala Murder: Politician and Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala could have been murdered on May 27, two days before the murder, the Special Cell of the Delhi Police has found during its investigations.
The main accused Priyavrat Fauji (who was the head of the ‘Bolero module’ of the gangster Lawrence Bishnoi) told the police during interrogation. Priyavrat told during interrogation that on May 27, Sidhu Moose Wala had left his house in a single vehicle.
“On May 27, Sidhu Moose Wala had left alone in the car, following which he was chased by shooters in Bolero and Corolla cars. But Sidhu Moose Wala’s car started speeding on the main highway instead of a village road and the shooter did not follow the car and the plan failed,” Priyavrat Fauji told the police.
Meanwhile, the police is also probing whether the weapons used by the accused were obtained from Pakistan through drones and the weapons were not made in India.
“Grenade launchers, hand grenades, electronic detonators and different types of rifles were recovered,” an official said.
These weapons were not made in India. Sources in the Special Cell said that such weapons were recently found in Pakistan and it is suspected that these weapons may also be part of the same consignment.
A police source said, “Lawrence Bishnoi has a good network in Pakistan. Apart from this, Jaggu Bhagwanpuri, a gangster from Punjab, also used to bring drugs from Pakistan. At least 40 pistols imported from Pakistan were seized. Bishnoi gang has been getting weapons from Pakistan, Madhya Pradesh, Munger. A network of Bishnois is also active in the US, which transports weapons from various countries to Punjab.”
Singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead a day after the Punjab government reduced his security. His cousin and a friend who were traveling with him in the jeep were also injured in the attack.
