According to reports, Punjabi musician and Congress politician Sidhu Moose Wala has dead in Jahawarke village in the Mansa district. The assailants opened fire on a vehicle they were riding in, injuring two other people.
The perpetrators of the attack remain unknown at this time. Moose Wala was one of 424 people who had their security coverage withdrawn by the Punjab government. After the incident, media said that Moose Wala and two others have transported to Mansa Hospital for treatment.
Among the three patients brought to the hospital, civil surgeon confirmed that Sidhu Moose had dead. We have sent the two wounded individuals on for additional treatment once we’ve completed initial care for them here.
Investigators assume the attack has carried out by criminals. Gangsters in Canada recently demanded ransom from a number of Punjabi singers. Aam Aadmi Party leader Vijay Singla defeated Moose Wala in the recent Punjab Assembly elections.
Singla was arrested on corruption accusations on Friday and taken into detention by the court for a period of 14 days.
Earlier this week, Singla was removed from the state Cabinet following the emergence of the charges. Punjab Anti-Corruption Cell detained him the same day for reportedly seeking Rs 1.16-crore for allotting building projects and 1 percent fee on future contracts.
