New Delhi: Politics has heated up after the murder of Moose wala. Punjab Congress has alleged that the AAP government is responsible for the incident. At the same time, the issue of reducing the security of the singer has also been raised by the local Congress.
Sidhu Moose Wala, Congress leader and Punjabi singer, was shot dead in Mansa district on Sunday. Two other people were injured in the firing. The incident took place a day after Punjab withdrew the security of 424 people, including Moose Wala. The security cover was withdrawn as a part of Bhagwant Mann government’s exercise to crack down on VIP culture.
Punjab Congress chief Amarinder Singh said, “It has happened due to government`s failure and police`s incompetence. It needs to be investigated under a sitting judge of National Investigation Agency (NIA). It`s a political murder. The state government should step down.”
Amarinder Singh Warring also targetted Punjab Police and said that they should be ashamed as it is their responsibility to ensure law and order in the state.
“Punjab Director General of Police VK Bhawra should be ashamed as it`s his responsibility to ensure law and order in the state. Instead, he is running away from his responsibility by saying it was a gang rivalry. We will go to the High Court and will meet the governor in this regard soon. If we don`t get justice, then we will also meet Union Home Minister Amit Shah,” Warring added.
Famous Punjabi singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab’s Mansa district on Sunday. Punjab’s Director General of Police VK Bhawra said at least three weapons were used and 30 rounds fired in the attack.
Meanwhile, Punjab Director General of Police VK Bhawra informed on Sunday that the killing of famous singer Sidhu Moose Wala seems to be a fallout of an inter-gang rivalry and that the Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gang were involved in it.
He further said a Special Investigation Team (SIT) will be set up to investigate the matter. In a media statement, the state police chief said Moosewala`s security cover was scaled down to free personnel for deployment during the Operation Bluestar anniversary next month.
