Chandigarh (IANS): A trial court in Punjab on Wednesday morning remanded gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, accused in the killing of Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh, popularly known as Sidhu Moose Wala, to police custody till June 22.

Bishnoi, who was brought from New Delhi after procuring the transit remand from Patiala House court, was produced in a Mansa court in Punjab at around 4 a.m. amid high-level security after his medical check-up.

After securing the police remand, he was shifted to the Crime Investigating Agency (CIA) headquarters in Mohali, near here, for interrogation.

A day earlier, the Patiala House Court in Delhi allowed Punjab Police to take Bishnoi to Mansa court.

Punjab Police brought Bishnoi to Punjab from Delhi in a bulletproof car that was escorted by more than 50 police personnel.

The police have termed him as the mastermind behind the plot to kill Moose Wala.

Some of the accused arrested by Punjab Police have revealed the name of Bishnoi as the main culprit who hired them to execute the killers.

In a major breakthrough, the police on June 14 arrested two members of the Lawrance Bishnoi gang.

Senior Superintendent of Police (Mohali) Vivek Sheel Soni said the two accused — Gagandeep Singh alias Gaagi and Gurpreet Singh alias Gopi — are residents of Dabbwali in Sirsa district of Haryana.

He said the duo was in regular touch with a Canada-based person through gangster Manpreet Singh alias Manna, who provided the Toyota Corolla car to the assailants for killing Moose Wala.

Recently, Manpreet Singh was arrested in the murder case of Moose Wala.

Both the arrested accused were working on the directions of the Canada-based man and smuggled illegal weapons from the border area of Punjab and Rajasthan and delivered it to the shooters.
