The incident occurred just one day after Punjab withdrew security protection from Sidhu Moose Wala as part of the Bhagwant Mann government’s effort to crack down on VIP culture.
Mansa district in Delhi saw the death of Congress leader and Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala, who was shot to death on Sunday. Other persons were hurt in the exchange of gunfire. When Moose Wala’s security was withdrawn a day earlier, the incident occurred.
Because of the government’s efforts to combat the VIP culture, the security cover was removed.
On their way to Punjab, Moose Wala and two of his pals were ambushed by armed men. His SUV was shot up, and Moose Wala was found bleeding profusely in the backseat of the vehicle after the shooting.
Upon arrival at the hospital, physicians declared him brain dead and transported him there. There is speculation that gang violence may be to blame for this attack in Punjab, according to the police. According to police, a Canada-based criminal has allegedly claimed responsibility for the attack.
“This murder is linked to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. ‘ Lucky, a member of the gang, has taken charge from Canada “A statement from Punjab DGP V.K. Bhawra was made public. In the case of Vicky Middukhera’s murder last year, he stated the name of Moose Wala’s manager Shaganpreet came up.
Detectives speculated that this murder was vengeance for the killing of Middukhera. The Punjab Police has also established a special investigation squad to investigate the event. Moose Wala was the stage name given to Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu by the Indian film industry.
The 28-year-old hails from the Moosa town near Mansa and has had a string of hits in recent years. As a result of his songs’ pro-gun lyrics, the artist has received criticism from a number of sources. For his song, “Sanju,” he was accused of encouraging violence.
Mr Arvind Kejriwal and Mr Bhagwant Mann, the blood of Sidhu Moose Wala are on your hands.

The singer became a member of Congress in December of the previous year. Moose Wala was elected to the Punjab Assembly in 2022 on a Congress ticket from Mansa in Punjab. Dr. Vijay Singla of the Aam Aadmi Party beat him in the primary. He was defeated.
