"Bishnoi knows the actual source of weapons."
Gangster Lawrence Bishnoi has provided important details which may help police solve the Sidhu Moose Wala case.
Sidhu Moose Wala was killed in a shooting whilst out in his SUV in Punjab on May 29, 2022.
An investigation is ongoing but now, Lawrence Bishnoi has given details about weapons suppliers and where they are based.
The Delhi Police Special Cell was told that one group was led by Ranjeet, a resident of Faridkot, another by Vijay on the Haryana-Rajasthan border and a third by Raka.
Police believe these suppliers could be the ones who provided weapons for Sidhu Moose Wala’s killers.
According to sources, Bishnoi said during questioning that “it was Goldy Brar, a Canada-based gangster, who hatched the conspiracy to eliminate Sidhu Moose Wala” and the killing was the result of gang rivalry.
Bishnoi had been taken into custody for questioning where he claimed that Brar was responsible for Sidhu Moose Wala’s death.
Bishnoi was produced before Patiala House Court on June 5, 2022. He was remanded in police custody for a further five days.
His legal counsel Vishal Chopra said:
“The Delhi Police didn’t mention the Sidhu Moose Wala case in their remand application.
“But he was remanded to five more days police custody.”
Speaking about the weapons suppliers, a source said:
“Mukesh alias Puneet and Om alias Shakti and Harvinder of Jitender Gogi gang were held by us in April.
“They have told us that one Raka supplied them illegal weapons. Rohit alias Moi and Dinesh Karala who are handling the Gogi gang had helped them in procuring arms.
“Efforts were made to trace the source of the weapons but so far no success.”
Rohit was later arrested and during questioning, he said that he, along with other leading members, had provided weapons to Mukesh, Shakti and Harvinder through Raka after taking weapons from Lawrence Bishnoi.
A police official said: “Bishnoi knows the actual source of weapons.
“Bishnoi knows the whereabouts of Raka in areas of Delhi, Haryana, UP and Uttrakhand.
“We then arrested Bishnoi who was already in Tihar in another case.
“Bishnoi corroborated the disclosure statement made by accused Rohit and stated that he had supplied the weapons through Ranjeet who lives in Faridkot and Vijay who lives on Haryana-Rajasthan Border.
“Police staff have been sent to multiple locations in Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand in search of the co-accused.
“Bishnoi also disclosed that suspect Vijay brings arms and ammunition from Jodhpur, Rajasthan.”
Police are also investigating CCTV footage which showed Sidhu Moose Wala leaving his house several hours before he was fatally shot.
The footage showed a group of men standing in front of a black SUV.
One man then approaches the driver’s side and takes a picture with the singer.
Afterwards, the man is seen making a phone call.
Police suspect that the man alerted the shooters.
Prior to the murder, the men had also been seen near Sidhu’s house over the past three days.
