Video: Sidhu Moosewala’s SUV Was Being Trailed by 2 Cars Minutes Before He Was Shot Dead
Punjab SSP said when Moosewala and his associates reached Jawahar Ke village in Mansa, two vehicles intercepted them and they were hit by a hail of bullets from the occupants of these vehicles.
New Delhi: A CCTV footage showed two cars following Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s black SUV in Mansa district minutes before he was shot dead, reported news agency ANI. Eerie visuals show the singer’s SUV taking a right turn towards a corner as the two cars tailing it. The police said the singer had a bulletproof car, which he did not use on Sunday.
The controversial Punjabi singer and Congress leader Moosewala was shot dead on Sunday by unidentified assailants in Punjab’s Mansa district, a day after the state government curtailed his security cover. Moosewala’s cousin and a friend, who were travelling in a Mahindra Thar jeep with him, were also injured in the attack which is suspected to be a fallout of inter-gang rivalry, Mansa Senior Superintendent of Police Gaurav Toora told reporters. Punjab’s Director General of Police VK Bhawra said at least three weapons were used and 30 rounds fired in the attack.
