Coming as a big relief to the controversy surrounding Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala for allegedly firing from an assault weapon, the Sangrur court has stayed the arrest of DSP Daljit Singh Virk’s son and four gunmen.
Reportedly, an FIR was filed against Moosewala and five others in the Dhuri Police Station for facilitating the controversial singer as he practiced how to fire the deadly AK-47 in the field. They had filed for anticipatory bail. The co-accused in the controversial case had pleaded for an anticipatory bail in the Sangrur session court. In a big relief to them, the Additional District and Session Judge, Sangrur, Gurpratap Singh has granted them anticipatory bail staying their arrest till June 9.
Moosewala had triggered a controversy when a 40-second TikTok video showing him practicing the deadly AK-47 assault rifle in the company of cops at Badbar village near Dhanaula in Barnala district went viral. Subsequently, a second video emerged of Moosewala firing a pistol at the Punjab police’s makeshift shooting range at Ladda Kothi, near Dhuri in Sangrur district. Apparently, the police personnel accompanied him to the fields as he practiced how to fire AK-47.
Sangrur session court’s judgment has given a sigh of relief to the singer Moosewala, as he can also now file a petition seeking anticipatory bail.
