Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, 28, was shot dead on May 29 by unidentified assailants in Mansa, a day after the state government curtailed his security cover.
The investigation suggested Lawrence Bishnoi was the mastermind of the daylight killing. His close aide Goldy Brar, who is said to be based in Canada, is also under investigation in this case. Police have issued a Red Corner Notice against Brar through Interpol.
Moosewala had fought an election from Mansa in the Punjab assembly election on a Congress ticket but was defeated by Aam Aadmi Party’s Vijay Singla.
