Lawrence Bishnoi, one of the notorious gangsters in India, is likely linked in the killing of Punjabi singer and rapper Sidhu Moose Wala. A page run by Bishnoi Gang on Facebook posted the message that Goldy Brar – a Canadian terrorist killed the singer.
Bishnoi was born on 12 February 1992 into a Hindu family in Abohar Punjab, India. His father was a constable in the Punjab Police. He reportedly graduated from DAV College, Sector 10, Chandigarh. His network is mostly spread in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, and Rajasthan.
Bishnoi, who has had several run-ins with law enforcement, made headlines when he threatened to kill Bollywood actor Salman Khan.
Earlier this month, Punjab Police Anti-Gangster Task Force (AGTF) had arrested three close aides of Bishnoi from Bathinda.
Bishnoi is a suspect in several killings. He was arrested by police in an unknown case and has been in Jodhpur Police custody, the Times of India reported. It is alleged that he operates his gang from Faridkot jail.
"Today, Moosewala was killed in Punjab, I, Sachin Bishnoi, Lawrence Bishnoi take the responsibility. It's our work. Moosewala's name surfaced in our brother Vikramjit Singh Middukhera and Gurlal Brar's murder, but the Punjab Police did not take any action against him. We also came to know that Moosewala was also involved in the encounter of our associate Ankit Bhadu. Moosewala was working against us. Delhi Police had taken his name but Moosewala used his political power and saved his skin each time," Goldy wrote on his social media post.
Bishnoi's gang cited the killing a retaliation to the killing of Youth Akali Dal leader Vicky Middukhera, Punjab Director-General of Police VK Bhawra informed on Sunday.
