New Delhi: Balkaur Singh, father of late Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moosewala, on Sunday claimed that he has received a threatening email that said he will be killed soon.
“I’ve received threats on email from Rajasthan saying that I’ll be killed soon, so don’t take Lawrence Bishnoi’s name”, Moosewala’s father said, as quoted by news agency ANI.
Singh had alleged earlier as well that he was being threatened and was told that he would be killed by April 25.
“What wrong am I doing? Should I not fight my son’s case? I was threatened on February 18, 24 and 27 that I will be killed before April 25…I would like to tell the Government, to take back my security, I will continue to fight,” he added.
A case has been registered against unknown people for threatening Moosewala’s father, the police said, as per ANI report.
On March 7, Singh held a protest outside the Punjab Assembly and demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) investigation into the murder of his son.
While speaking to the media outside the Punjab Assembly, Singh said no investigation was happening.
“In the last 10 months, I went to the Police and Administration several times. I was assured. But what’s happening here is being done to brush under the carpet the murder of my child. Nothing is going in my favour. So, I had to come to the Assembly,” said the father of the late singer.
He further questioned what action was being taken against gangster Goldy Brar.
“CBI should investigate the matter…Who are these gangsters (arrested in the case), they are just henchmen. They took the money and shot him dead. The mastermind, who targeted my son…what action is being taken against Goldy Brar?” he asked.
Sidhu Moosewala, 28, was shot dead on May 29 last year in Mansa, a day after the state government curtailed his security cover. The Punjabi singer was shot at point-blank range and declared dead on arrival at the Mansa civil hospital.
The assailants fired over 30 rounds at Moosewala, who was found slumped in the driver’s seat by locals. However, the investigation suggested gangster Lawrence Bishnoi was the mastermind of the daylight killing. His close aide Goldy Brar, who is said to be based in Canada, was also under investigation in this case.
Police issued a Red Corner Notice against Brar through Interpol. Moosewala was murdered two days after Punjab Police curtailed his security cover besides 423 other persons citing the anniversary of Operation Blue Star.
