A local court today granted interim bail to Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu Moosewala in a case registered under the Arms Act at Dhuri Sadar police station on May 5. The next date of hearing has been fixed on July 15.

Earlier, the court had granted interim bail to the eight other accused in the case.

“The court has granted interim bail to Sidhu Moosewala and directed him to join police investigation. The court has fixed July 15 as the next date of hearing,” said Mahesh Goyal, Additional Public Prosecutor (APP).

On May 4, a video had gone viral on social media, wherein the singer was seen shooting at a firing range in Badbar of Barnala district. Subsequently, the Dhanauala police, on the directions of Punjab DGP Dinkar Gupta, registered a case against Moosewala and eight others under Sections 188 of the IPC, and 51 of the Disaster Management Act.

Those who were booked included Assistant Sub Inspector (ASI) Balkar Singh; head constables Gagandeep Singh and Gurjinder Singh; constables Jasvir Singh, Harwinder Singh and Karam Singh Lehal; and Inder Singh Grewal and Jang Sher Singh.

On May 5, another FIR was registered against the accused at Dhuri Sadar police station, wherein Moosewala was seen firing from his own pistol at Laddai Kothi shooting range.

On May 17, Sections 25 and 30 of the Arms Act were added to both FIRs registered against Moosewala and others. Later, the erring cops were suspended after cases were registered against them.
