Jagroop Rupa and Manpreet Manu – involved in the killing of famed Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala were shot dead by Punjab Police on the outskirts of Amritsar close to the India-Pakistan border.
Anti-Gangster Task Force chief Pramod Ban confirmed the killing of Manpreet, a henchman of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, along with Rupa. They had fired at Moosewala on May 29 which led to the singer’s death on the spot.
Ban told the media that jailed gangster Bishnoi, the main conspirator, had confessed that the plan to kill Moosewala was made in August last year to avenge the murder of Vicky Middukhera. Ban has said 13 people have been arrested in the case so far.
Moosewala was killed on May 29 close to his native village near Mansa in Punjab.
