Delhi Police arrested three persons, including two main shooters in the killing of famed Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala.

The Special Cell of the Delhi Police also discovered a cache of arms and explosives, including three pistols with 50 rounds each.

According to reports, the Police accused suspects include Priyavrat (26) who was the module head and was in direct contact with Canada-based Goldy Brar at the time of the occurrence, and commanded the team.

Kashish (24), a designated shooter who was also identified via CCTV footage of a petrol outlet in Fatehgarh, was the second person apprehended. In 2021, he was a wanted suspect in the Jhajjhar case in Haryana.

The third detained suspect, Keshav Kumar (29) was a facilitator who met the gunmen on a four-wheeler shortly after the shooting and escorted them to Mansa on the day of the incident, as well as during previous efforts at reconnaissance.

Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar had claimed responsibility for Moose Wala’s murder in a Facebook post.
