The Interpol has issued a Red-Corner Notice against Satinderjit Singh alias Goldy Brar who claimed responsibility for the murder of Punjabi singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala.

Singing sensation Moose wala,27, who had fought the recent assembly elections in Punjab on a Congress ticket, was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab’s Mansa district. This comes a day after the state government curtailed his security cover. Over 30 empty cases of bullets were found near his SUV in which he was killed.

In 2017, Goldy Brar, 28,  had gone to Canada on a student visa and is an active member of the gang of Lawrence Bishnoi, who has been named as a mastermind in the murder case.

Earlier, Goldy Brar had claimed the responsibility for Moose Wala’s murder and had reportedly said in a Facebook post that it was in retaliation to the murder of youth Akali leader Vicky Middukhera, which took place in 2021.

Punjab Police on Tuesday said it arrested as many as eight persons in connection with the murder of Moose Wala.

A day later, police named Lawrence Bishnoi — who is in Delhi’s Tihar jail — as the mastermind in the case. However, after questioned several times, Bishnoi had denied any connection with the murder and said his gang had planned and executed the crime.
