Popular Punjabi singer and rapper Sidhu Moosewala, who joined Congress before the Punjab election, was shot dead. It came just a day after Punjab police withdrew the guards of 424 people, including Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala.
Sidhu Moosewala’s security was lifted the day before, on May 28, by the government of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann. Two armed policemen guarding him were taken out.
Immediately after the incident, the 28-year-old singer was taken to a civilian hospital in Mansa, where he died of his injuries.
He was driving his Jeep Thar when he was shot.
In November last year, Moosewala, a native of Musa, joined Congress amid loud fanfare. After Congress handed him a ticket from the constituency of the Mansi Assembly, then-Mansi MP Nazar Singh Manshahia revolted against the party, saying he would oppose the controversial singer’s candidacy.
“The murder of Shri Sidhu Moose Wala, Congress candidate from Punjab & a talented musician, has come as a terrible shock to the Congress party & the entire nation. Our deepest condolences to his family, fans & friends. We stand united & undeterred, at this time of extreme grief,” tweeted the party’s official handle.
Youth Congress National President BV Srinivas has blamed the Aam Aadmi Party government of the state for the death of Sidhu Musewala, he said “Kejriwal and Bhagwant Man Sidhu Musewala’s blood is in your hands. Shame on you and resign.”
