BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga slammed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal and Rajya Sabha member Raghav Chadha after Punjabi singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moosewala was assassinated in Punjab's Mansa district on Sunday evening. Taking to Twitter, Bagga blamed the AAP leaders for the deteriorating law and order situation in Punjab.
"Law and order has collapsed in Punjab. Only 2 people @ArvindKejriwal and @raghav_chadha are responsible who are operating this govt from Delhi," Tajinder Pal Bagga wrote in a Twitter post.
Notably, the Aam Aadmi Party has come under immense criticism over the Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann-led administration's decision to withdraw Moosewala's security cover a day before he was shot dead. Several opposition parties are blaming the AAP government for the Punjabi singer's murder.
Meanwhile, investigating the case, police seized two vehicles and recovered multiple fake registation plates in connection with the murder.
At 5.30 PM on Sunday, May 29, Punjabi singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moosewala was travelling in his own car in Mansa's Jawaharke village, with two people when a car came from behind and two cars from the front and unknown miscreants opened fire. The Punjab Police informed that all three people sustained bullet injuries and were immediately rushed to the nearby hospital. Upon arrival, Moosewala was declared dead.
In a news briefing yesterday, Punjab DGP Viresh Kumar Bhawra confirmed, "When Sidhu Moosewala along with his cousin and friend reached village Jawahar Ke, they were followed by a white corolla and they were intercepted from the front by two cars including white Bolero and a dark Grey Scorpio."

Posting a statement on social media, Brar said, "He was named in the killing of our brother Vicky Middukhehra, Gurlal Brar but the police didn’t act. He was also behind the encounter of our brother Ankit Bhadu...Delhi Police had put his name in front of the media, but still, by using his power he was avoiding punishment, no action was being taken against him. He was working against us."
