Mansa (Punjab) [India], June 7 (ANI): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi met the family of the late singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moosewala at Moosa village in Punjab's Mansa district on Tuesday.
Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Jawaharke village of Punjab's Mansa district on May 29. The incident took place a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police among 424 others.
Earlier on Monday, former Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan Sachin Pilot visited Moose Wala's house and met the singer's father. He expressed grief over the murder and demanded strict action against the culprits.
BJP leaders Hans Raj Hans and Manjinder Singh Sirsa also met Moose Wala's family.
Notably, Moose Wala's body had 19 bullet injury injuries and he died within 15 minutes of being shot, according to the post-mortem report, which also stated that the cause of his death was "haemorrhage shock" due to antemortem firearm injuries.
