Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moose Wala shot dead day after security was withdrawn

Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district on Sunday a day after the state’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government withdrew the security of some 420 people, including Moose Wala.

Police offier Gobinder Singh told PTI Moosewala, 28, and his two friends were travelling in a jeep when they were shot at several times in Jawahar Ke village

Dr Ranjeet Rai told reporters that Moosewala was brought dead to the state-run hospital in Mansa. His friends are being treated at another hospital for injuries.

In the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections, Sidhu Moose Wala contested from Mansa on a Congress ticket. He was defeated by Aam Aadmi Party's Dr Vijay Singla

“I am shocked and deeply saddened by the gruesome murder of Siddhu Moosewala. Nobody involved will be spared. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and his fans across the world.
