Raising concern over ‘fake encounter’, Bishnoi had on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking security if his custody was handed over to the Punjab Police

Two more suspects from Punjab’s Mansa were detained on Wednesday in connection with the killing of popular Punjabi singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala. Manpreet Singh alias Bhau, who was earlier detained from Dehradun, has been sent five-day police custody.

Sources told News18 that the two suspects detained on Wednesday were out of jail on parole. They are now being interrogated. Delhi police has already obtained the custody of jailed gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, another suspect in Moose Wala’s murder. Bishnoi’s custody has reportedly been obtained in connection with an old case.

Raising concern over “fake encounter”, Bishnoi had on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking security if his custody was handed over to the Punjab Police. However, he withdrew his petition on Wednesday. The gangster will now move to the High Court of Punjab and Haryana, a report in ANI stated.

Bishnoi is already lodged in Tihar Jail and faces charges under the Arms Act and other sections related to assault on a public servant in the case. “Since Bishnoi has been taken into police custody, we will also be questioning him in connection with the killing of Moose Wala in Punjab,” police had said on Monday.

Punjab Police had on Sunday said the killing of Moose Wala seemed to be the result of an inter-gang rivalry and that the Lawrence Bishnoi gang was involved in it. “On Tuesday, gangster Bishnoi was questioned for a few hours by the Special cell unit and then was arrested in a different case. He was then taken to a Delhi Court to get his police custody,” a jail official said.
