Gurcharan Singh, the grandfather of the accused, said, “Before handing him over to the police, I spoke with Harkamal, but he has denied any wrongdoing and involvement in the crime."

Punjabi singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala was fatally shot on 29 May by unidentified men near Jawaharke village in Punjab's Mansa district. According to the reports, the autopsy suggested that the body received 25 bullet injuries.
