Who is Lawrence Bishnoi? In the Punjabi police’s opinion, Sidhu Moose Wala was killed due to rivalry between gangs. VK Bhawra, the Punjab DGP, also said that Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi, both based in Canada, are responsible for the killing.
Who is Lawrence Bishnoi?
Lawrence Bishnoi, a 31-year-old reputed criminal, has been imprisoned in Rajasthan as of 2017 for his alleged involvement in a plot to kill Salman Khan. His illegal activities appear to be carried out using a mobile phone while in prison. The Blackbuck is a sacred animal for the Bishnoi community. After he and associates plotted to kill Khan over Khan’s involvement in a blackbuck poaching case, he gained fame.
In Chandigarh, he attended the DAV college and was born into a well-off Punjabi family in Dhattarwal of Ferozepur district. Early in his college career, Bishnoi became involved in politics and was president of the student organization at Punjab University. In 2010, during Bishnoi’s student days, an attempt to murder case was first filed against him. Since then, he has not looked back. An assault and robbery charge was filed against him the following year.
Additionally, Bishnoi is thought to have been linked to Jaswinder Singh, a politician assassinated in 2016. His accomplices manage his social media profiles, which have lots of followers. According to an unsubstantiated social media platform on his profile, Moose Wala was killed because he was reportedly engaged in the murder of his colleague Vicky Middukhera.
Lawrence Bishnoi-Suspect in Moosewala Murder case
Six people have been taken into custody by the Punjab Police in connection with the killing of Sidhu Moose Wala in Rajasthan’s Jawaharke village on Sunday.
According to the police, three vehicles, including a Gray Scorpio, a Corolla, and a Bolero, which were recovered by police yesterday, were also found to have fake registration plates. In the meantime, the SIT is all six suspects. According to reports, a police investigation found links between them and the Lawrence Bishnoi gang.
Investigators are also tracing the location of six arrested individuals during the firing on Sidhu Moose Wala. During the very same incident, CCTV video from Sidhu MooseWala’s home and the length of Jawahar Ke village and Barnala road has been analyzed.
As part of the SIT investigation, the officials are also investigating the mobile data dump active on the crime scene since yesterday evening. Sidhu Moose Wala, who was an influential Congress leader and Punjabi singer, was murdered by inter-gang rivalry, according to the Punjab Police.
Investigators found that the shootout may have been caused by a fight between Lawrence and Lucky Patiyal. In contrast, Goldy Brar and Anmol Bishnoi, Lawrence’s younger brother, have been identified as critical players in the assassination of Sidhu Moose Wala.
Lawrence Bishnoi’s organization has already taken credit for Sidhu Mooswala’s murder, claiming it was in retaliation for the death of Vicky Midhukhera.
Police Inspector General (IGP) Bathinda Range Pardeep Yadav established a Special Investigation Team (SIT) under the direct supervision of Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann and Punjab Police Director General (DGP) VK Bhawra to ensure that the murder case was investigated effectively and speedily.
Sunny, Anil Lath, and Bholu, all Haryana residents, have been arrested and are being interrogated by Punjab Police in Delhi. Three people have been arrested as part of the investigation into Vicky Midhukhera’s murder by the Delhi Police Special Cell.
Besides Shaganpreet, who managed Sidhu Moose Wala, a third person named in the FIR about Vicky’s murder was Shaganpreet. Currently, Shaganpreet is sought by Australian police for his escape to Australia.
His Connection to Siddhu Moosewala
In 2021, one Vikramjit Singh Middukhera, 33, a leading Youth Akali Dal leader named Vicky Middukhera, lost his life after being shot. Shagunpreet Singh was alleged to have been directed to carry out the killing by Moosewala. Singh allegedly orchestrated the killing of Middukhera with the help of the Kaushal gang.
When Singh’s name came out in the inquiry earlier this year, he left for another country. Anil Kumar, alias Latth, Sajjan Singh, aka Bholu, and Ajay Kumar, aka Sunny, members of that whole Kaushal-Bambhia-Lucky Padial gang, were arrested as part of the inquiry. The Punjab Police later took them into custody.
Police told them that Bhuppi Rana and Amit Dagar were responsible for giving the order to kill Middukhera.
