Sidhu Moosewala’s AK47 Case To Be Reopened: State Transport Minister, Laljit Singh Bhullar

The release of Sidhu Moosewala’s recent track ‘Scapegoat’ has seemed to raise up the legal troubles for the artist. With a history of legal charges against him, Sidhu Moosewala has always been a regular guest at the courts. In 2020, a video clip of the artist allegedly firing an AK47 rifle went viral over social media and a case was registered against him for the same. 

Though the case had been closed, the State Transport Minister, Laljit Singh Bhullar has said that it will be reopened. The announcement comes shortly after the release of Sidhu Moosewala’s track, Scapegoat, in which the singer seemingly took shots at various artists, politicians and even the people of Punjab.

The clip showing the singer allegedly firing from an AK47 resulted in cases being registered against Sidhu Moosewala, five Police officials – a Sub-inspector, 2 head constables and 2 constables, posted at Sangrur. Additional cases were registered against officials at the Police Station, Dhanaula.

Sidhu Moosewala faced several FIRs under Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act, for allegedly defying the COVID-pandemic laws and also under the Arms Act. Further actions resulted in suspension of Sangrur DSP, Daljit Singh Virk.

However, Sidhu Moosewala was released on bail. Allegedly, investigations were made to check the authenticity of the gun used and it was reported that the gun was not a real rifle, but a toy gun. Laljit Singh Bhullar has now announced that a re-investigation will be initiated to check the authenticity of the gun.
