According to Punjab Police ADGP Pramod Ban on Thursday, gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has acknowledged that he was the murder’s primary planner and has been working on the assassination of Punjabi artist Sidhu Moose Wala since last August.
Another suspect, Baldev alias Nikku, was detained on Thursday, according to Mr. Ban, who is also the leader of the Anti-Gangster Task Force.

On May 29, a day after the Punjab government temporarily reduced the security cover for the singer and 423 people, Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, better known as Sidhu Moose Wala, was fatally shot in Punjab’s Mansa region.

“Lawrence Bishnoi was recently detained in connection with the case; his detention was prolonged to June 27. He has acknowledged that he planned the murder of Moosewala “Ban informed journalists.

“Since August of last year, a strategy for carrying out the murder has been developed. Our knowledge indicates that there were three recces. A second set of shooters attempted to assassinate Moose Wala in January as well, but were unsuccessful “says the ADGP.

He added that the Punjab police were able to piece together the sequence of events after discovering a receipt with the date May 25 from a gas station in Fatehabad that was used to transport Moose Wala.

“We were able to identify the accused, Priyavrat alias Fauji, through CCTV footage taken from the Fatehabad gas station. 13 persons have been detained thus far, and the entire conspiracy has been uncovered “Ban said.

Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was taken to the state by the Punjab Police from Delhi last week for questioning in the singer Sidhu Moosewala murder case, had his police detention extended by a court in Mansa.

Officials had said on Monday that the Delhi Police had detained three people, including two of the shooters, in the case, and that one of them had been in contact with Canadian mobster Goldy Brar at the time of the incident.
