Sidhu Moose Wala Murder Accused Gangster Goldy Brar Detained In America: Punjab CM


New Delhi: Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann on Friday said that Sidhu Moose Wala murder accused gangster Goldy Brar has been detained in the USA.

“There is a confirmed piece of news this morning. Being the Head of the State I tell you that a big gangster sitting in Canada, Goldy Brar has been detained in America,” says Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann said in Ahmedabad, Gujarat.

This statement comes after it was reported that Goldy Brar is on the radar of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as he has been tracked in California, US.

According to security agencies, the Canada-based gangster had fled to California. FBI has sought records and dossiers related to Goldy’s criminal activities from Indian agencies. The government of India will send all the documents to the FBI to request Goldy Brar’s deportation.

Prior to this, Sidhu Moose Wala’s father demanded on Thursday that the Union government announce a reward of Rs 2 crore for any information that leads to the arrest of Goldy Brar, the mastermind behind the murder of the Punjabi singer.

According to news agency PTI, Balkaur Singh said he was even ready to pay the reward from his own pocket if the government was unable to give out the high amount.

Speaking at an event in Amritsar, Balkaur Singh cited an example of the Australian Police, which had announced a reward of 1 million AUD for the arrest of an Indian-origin citizen who had fled that country after killing a woman four years ago.

He demanded that Brar be brought to India to face the law for his crimes.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moose Wala, was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. Brar, who is a member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, had claimed the responsibility for the murder.

Requesting the central government to announce the reward for information that could lead to the gangster’s arrest, Sidhu Moose Wala‘s father said that the late singer used to pay Rs 2 crore as tax.

“Why don’t you announce a reward of Rs 2 crore. If somebody helps in getting him (Brar) caught, this reward money can be given,” Balkaur Singh said, as quoted by PTI.

“I promise that if it cannot pay that much money, I will pay from my own pocket, even if I need to sell my land,” he added.

The Punjab Police had said that a red corner notice, which allows the arrest and detention of a fugitive abroad, had been issued against Brar.

Satinderjeet Singh, alias Brar, a native of Sri Muktsar Sahib in Punjab, had gone to Canada on a student visa in 2017 and he is an active member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Brar is also a key conspirator in a Dera Sacha Sauda follower’s murder last month.
