Mansa: Famous Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead in broad daylight. There was a fierce firing on them in Jawaharke village of Mansa. He lost his life in the firing. Along with this, two of his companions were injured. In Punjab, the AAP government led by CM Bhagwant Mann had reduced the security of Sidhu Musewala on Saturday itself.

Where earlier Sidhu used to have 8 to 10 gunmen, it was reduced to two gunmen. The order was issued by Punjab Government on Saturday. According to initial information, Sidhu Moosewala was going by car with his companions. The attackers riding in a black car fired at them. Moosewala was shot only after he was about 5 km away from the house.

Sidhu Moosewala spoke to his lawyer yesterday in which he had told the threat to his life. Moosewala had said that the Punjab government had suddenly reduced his security without giving any notice. In such a situation, some other arrangement will have to be made for this. Sidhu Moosewala had contested against Dr. Vijay Singla of Aam Aadmi Party on a Congress ticket from Mansa seat in the Punjab Assembly elections. Musewala was defeated and Vijay Singla, who defeated him, became the health minister of the state. However, recently CM Bhagwant Mann dismissed him from the post on charges of corruption. Since then, speculations are being made about the political conspiracy behind this murder.
