Mumbai, India (CU)_ Following the murder of the famous Punjabi singer, Bollywood stars, singers, and television stars rushed to their social media handles to express shock and sorrow at the singer’s death. A day after the state government revoked the security protection for some personalities in the state, the 28-year-old Punjabi musician Sidhu Moose Wala was fatally shot dead in the Mansa region of Punjab.
Moose Wala was also a vocal supporter of the farmers protesting against the three now-repealed farm laws. The Punjab Police revoked the protection of 424 individuals last week, including Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu. According to the police, mobster Lawrence Bishnoi has taken responsibility for the controversial murder, blaming it as a retribution for the murder of Youth Akali Dal leader Vicky Middukhera.
