Sangrur, May 20

In more trouble for Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala and suspended policemen, the Sangrur police have started conducting raids to arrest them.

"After the addition of Sections 25 and 30 of the Arms Act to the FIR against Moosewala and others, their act has now become a non-bailable offence. We have formed special teams and started conducting raids to arrest the accused," said Gurmeet Singh, SP, Punjab Bureau of Investigation.

On the directions of Patiala IG Jatinder Singh Aulakh last week, the Sangrur and Barnala SSPs had deputed SP-rank officers for an investigation into the matter. "Our seniors are supervising the investigation. No one will be spared for violation of law," the SP said.

On May 4, after a video showing the singer shooting at a firing range in Badbar went viral on social media, the police, on the directions of DGP Dinkar Gupta, had registered a case under Section 188 of the IPC and Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act against Moosewala and five policemen.

Within 24 hours, another FIR was registered against all under the same sections at Dhuri Sadar police station after another video showing Moosewala firing from his private pistol at Laddai Kothi shooting range surfaced. "We are conducting a thorough investigation," said Sandeep Goel, SSP, Barnala. — TNS
