Gangster Goldy Brar, Suspect in Sidhu Moosewala Murder, Shot Dead in US

Gangster Goldy Brar, the prime suspect in the murder case of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, has reportedly been shot dead in the United States. The incident took place on Tuesday evening, May 1, 2024, around 5:25 PM local time in Fairmont and Holt Avenue, where Brar was standing outside his residence with a companion when unidentified assailants arrived and allegedly opened fire before fleeing the scene.

Two individuals were rushed to the hospital, with one succumbing to injuries. Brar's rivals, gangsters Arsh Dalla and Lakbhir, have claimed responsibility for orchestrating the attack, citing longstanding enmity as the motive. The circumstances surrounding Brar's reported death remain uncertain, and there has been no official confirmation or response from Lawrence Bishnoi's gang or any other criminal faction regarding the claims made by Dalla and Lakhbir.

Goldy Brar, born in 1994 in Muktsar Sahib, Punjab, came from a family with a police background but chose a different path, living in Canada and operating remotely in Punjab. He had claimed responsibility for the murder of Sidhu Moosewala in May 2022, stating that it was in retaliation for Moosewala's alleged role in the killing of Lawrence's associate, Vicky Midukhera. Since then, Brar had been on the lookout, and a Red Corner Notice was also issued against him.

Why this matters: The reported killing of Goldy Brar, a high-profile gangster and key suspect in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case, marks a significant development in the ongoing gang rivalries and criminal activities in Punjab. The incident highlights the transnational nature of these criminal networks and the challenges faced by law enforcement agencies in curbing their activities.

As investigations unfold into the alleged Goldy Brar killing case, the hunt for members of the Dalla Lakhbir gang, including Arsh Dalla and Lakhbir Singh Sandhu, alias Landa, will now intensify. "The Union Home Ministry and Interpol have flagged Dalla as a significant threat, with international law enforcement agencies actively pursuing him," according to the reports. The incident is expected to lead to more chapters in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case and other criminal activities in Punjab.
