In a key development in Sidhu Moose Wala's murder, Punjab Police on Wednesday sought the issuance of a Red Corner Notice (RCN) against Goldi Brar, a Canada-based gangster, who claimed responsibility for the Punjabi singer's murder.  Punjab Police also issued a statement saying that Goldy Brar is 'a native of Punjab's Sri Muktsar Sahib who went to Canada on a student visa in 2017, and is an active member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang'. 

Notably, what has raised many eyebrows is that the Punjab Police had sought the issuance of a Red Corner Notice (RCN) against Goldy Brar, ten days before the murder of Sidhu Moose Wala. As per reports, Punjab Police had sent the proposal to the Crime Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to issue RCN against Brar on May 19, ten days before Moosewala's murder. 

The proposal was sent on basis of two cases including FIR number 409 (November 12, 2020) under sections 307, 427, 148, 149, 120-B of IPC and sections 25, 27, 54, 59 of Arms Act, and FIR number 44 (February 18, 2021) under IPC sections 302, 120-B and 34 and sections 25, 54 and 59 of Arms Act.

Furthermore, the Punjab Police stated that if the RCN had been issued against Goldy Brar, then the attack on Sidhu Moose Wala might have been averted. Following the issuance of RCN, CBI would have contacted Interpol and could have asked for the extradition of Goldy Brar. As a result, the attack on Sidhu Moose Wala might have been averted. 

Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Mansa district on May 29. Following the Congress leader's killing, police had termed the incident as a case of an inter-gang rivalry. The Lawrence Bishnoi gang was said to be behind the murder.
