New Delhi: Sachin Bishnoi, an accused in the murder of Punjabi Singer Sidhu Moosewala, has been extradited to India from Azerbaijan. Sachin is a relative of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
Sachin was extradited from the country’s capital, Baku, by the Delhi Police Special Cell, news agency ANI quoted HGS Dhaliwal, Special Commissioner Of Police (Delhi), as saying.
Sidhu Moosewala, 28, was shot dead on May 29 last year in Punjab’s Mansa, a day after the state government had curtailed his security cover.
He was shot at point-blank range and was declared dead on arrival at the Mansa civil hospital.
Investigation pointed to Lawrence Bishnoi being the mastermind of the killing. His close aide, Goldy Brar, who is said to be based in Canada, has also been named in the chargesheet filed in the murder case.
Another accused in Moosewala’s murder, Vikramjeet Singh alias Vikram Brar, had been arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) after his deportation from the UAE last week.
Brar, a key associate of Lawrence Bishnoi, was allegedly involved in cases of weapons smuggling and extortion in India with the help of Bishnoi, Goldy Brar and others. He was wanted in at least 11 cases of murder, attempt to murder and extortion, and had been on the run since 2020.
