On May 29, singer-politician Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab’s Mansa district. Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead a day after the state government curtailed his security cover.

Four days after the Pune Police intensified their investigation, on June 14, they nabbed the accused sharpshooter, Santosh Jadhav. Jadhav is currently facing four criminal cases, including the murder of a gangster. He had shifted his base to Punjab and Rajasthan. He has also received advanced weapons training.
