Just 10 days before the killing of singer-politician Sidhu Moosewala, the Punjab Police had sought a red corner notice against Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar, who had taken responsibility for the murder.
News agency PTI quoted officials saying that the red-corner was sought against Satinderjit Singh, alias Goldy Brar, in two separate cases registered against him in Faridkot.
A red-corner notice allows the arrest and detention of a fugitive abroad.
The Punjab Police says it had sent a proposal in this regard to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on May 19. The singer was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29.
