Sidhu Moose Wala: Delhi police arrest a 19-year-old suspect in the murder of a singer

Police in Delhi have arrested a 19-year-old man suspected of point-blank shooting of popular Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala.

Ankit Sirsa is accused of being the youngest of five gang members who gunned down the singer in May and was arrested at a Delhi bus station over the weekend along with another suspect – Sachin Bhiwani – who is accused of helping the attackers after the killing to have helped.

Police Special Commissioner HGS Dhaliwal said at a news conference on Monday that Sirsa is accused of shooting Elche Wala six times while firing two handguns at the same time. Police said he was also wanted in connection with two counts of attempted murder, one in Rajasthan and the other in Haryana state.

Last month, Delhi’s special squad arrested three people, including two suspected gunmen, in connection with the killing of Moose Wala.

The defendants were identified as Priyavrat aka Fauji, Kashish and Keshav Kumar.

A police source said Indian Express that the arrest of Priyavrat, who is accused of being the “main gunman” in the murder, gave up “significant” leads that eventually led to other suspected gunmen. “They have been in hiding for more than a month and have changed locations to avoid arrest. Our team tracked her down and arrested her in Delhi,” the source was quoted as saying.

The shooting of Moose Wala came just a day after his security forces were dismantled by the state’s two-month-old Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in a crackdown on “VIP culture”.
