Dharmanjot Singh Kahlo supplied weapons to kill Sidhu Moose Wala

New Delhi:

In a big breakthrough in Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder case, a wanted international arms dealer was detained by the police in the United States, sources told NDTV. 

Dharmanjot Singh Kahlon was detained in California and is closely associated with gangsters Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi, sources added.

The two gangsters are also accused in the murder case. While Brar is believed to be hiding in Canada, Bishnoi is lodged in the Bathinda central jail. Kahlon supplied weapons that were allegedly used by Goldy Brar in Sidhu Moose Wala’s murder.

Sidhu Moosewala, 28, was shot dead on May 29 last year in Punjab’s Mansa, a day after the state government had curtailed his security cover.

The government will soon get in touch with the FBI to extradite Kahlon to India, sources in security agencies said. 

The arms dealer, who is from Punjab’s Amritsar, is accused of smuggling AK-47 rifles and other sophisticated weapons. 

The accused is wanted in a case filed under the stringent Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and a lookout notice was already issued. The Delhi Police’s Special Cell, the Punjab Police and the anti-terror agency NIA were on the hunt for Kahlon. 

Gangster Sachin Bishnoi told the Counter Intelligence Unit that the arms dealer in the US supplied weapons to the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. Kahlon, who was hiding in the US, was associated with gangster Jaggu Bhagwanpuriya, who made him get in touch with Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar, sources said. He supplied weapons to Lawrence Bishnoi and Bambiha gangs.

Sachin Bishnoi, who is an accused in the murder case, was recently extradited to India from Azerbaijan. Sachin is a relative of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
