Police probing Canadian gang link after Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala shot dead in India

Police in India say they are investigating a potential Canadian gang link to the murder of a Punjabi-language singer with roots in Brampton, Ont.

Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, widely known by his stage name Sidhu Moose Wala, rose to international stardom on a string of hits recorded after moving to Canada as an international student. In recent years he returned to India, where he mounted an unsuccessful political campaign for the Indian National Congress Party in the 2022 Punjab state elections.

Moose Wala and two others were shot in their vehicle on Sunday in the village of Jawaharke in the Mansa district of Punjab. They were shot by a group of assailants one day after police reduced security teams assigned to him and more than 400 other people, according to the Hindustan Times. He was transported to hospital where he died.
