A fierce encounter broke out between Punjab Police and two gangsters suspected to have played a role in the killing of singer Sidhu Moosewala near Punjab’s Amritsar on Wednesday. According to ANI, two gangsters named Jagroop Singh Roopa and Manpreet Singh alias Mannu Kusa, both key suspects in singer Sidhu Moosewala’s murder, have been killed in the shootout with the police near Amritsar. Three Punjab policemen have also been injured in the shootout.

The Punjab Police also recovered an AK-47 along with heavy ammunition from the encounter spot. “A heavy exchange of fire took place today, 2 gangsters involved in Sidhu Moosewala murder case namely Jagroop Singh Roopa & Manpreet Singh were killed. We have recovered an AK47 & a pistol. 3 police officials have also suffered minor injuries,” Punjab DGP Gaurav Yadav confirmed to ANI.

According to official sources, the two gangsters – Jagroop Singh Roopa and Manpreet Singh – were allegedly involved in the killing of the singer and they were absconding since the crime. The encounter at Bhakna village, 20 km from Amritsar started earlier in the afternoon as Punjab Police’s Anti-Gangster Task Force had been tailing the two men. The entire area was cordoned off and the locals were told to stay indoors, the officials said.

Sidhu Moose Wala, 28, who was a Congress leader besides being a singer-songwriter and rapper, was shot dead near his village Moosa in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29. A CCTV footage recently surfaced showing Roopa and Kusa riding a bike at Samalsar in Moga district on June 21. Police have identified six shooters who were part of the two modules involved in the killing.

The Special Cell of the Delhi Police had earlier nabbed three shooters — Priyavrat Fauji, Kashish and Ankit Sirsa. Jagroop Singh Roopa and Manpreet Singh alias Mannu Kusa were part of the second module.

It is believed that Kusa had fired at Moosewala with an AK-47 rifle. Kusa and Roopa were in a Toyota Corolla car which was trailing Moosewala’s vehicle at Jawahar Ke village in Mansa district on May 29.

After committing the crime, Kusa and Roopa had snatched a car which was later found abandoned in Moga district
