Siddesh Kamble knows conspiracy to assassinate Sidhu Mooswala: Investigating officers
New Delhi: Siddesh Kamble alias Mahakal, who was arrested by the Pune Rural Police, knew that Punjabi singer Sidhu Mooswala was going to be killed and was in touch with Vikram Prabhu a week before the murder, if investigators believe.
Kamble, a member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang who was allegedly behind the Mooswala murder, was arrested by Pune rural police earlier this week in another case.
Bollywood actor Salman Khan has been questioned by the Mumbai Crime Branch police over a threatening letter to him.
“Mahagal was not directly involved in the attack on Mooswala. But according to the information available to us, he knew that Mooswala would be killed because Vikram Prar had discussed Mooswala with him,” said a senior police official of the Maharashtra Police. Study here.
He said he had been in contact with Mahakal Bro a week before the actual murder on May 29.
Prar is currently a close aide of Lawrence Bishnoi, a gang in custody by the Delhi Police.
The official said that members of the Bishnoi gang used social media platforms and the encrypted messaging processor to communicate with each other and use code words to avoid being monitored by intelligence agencies.
Meanwhile, a Pune rural police team has arrived in Delhi to investigate Bishnoi.
Pune police want to question Bishnoi about the whereabouts of gangster Santosh Jadhav.
Jadhav, who has been identified as one of the shooters in Mooswala’s murder case, has been charged in a murder case in Pune under the strict Maharashtra Organized Crime Control Act (MCOCA).
Apart from gathering information about Jadhav’s whereabouts, the Pune rural police want to know if there is any other youth from Maharashtra with links to the Bishnoi gang, the official said.
Kamble, who was booked in the MCOCA case, was wanted by the Pune Rural Police for harboring Jadhav and a murder case was registered against him in 2021 at the Mansar police station in Pune district.
On Thursday, Mumbai police said that based on Kamble’s investigation, three members of the Bishnoi gang had sent a threatening letter to Salman Khan and his father, writer Salim Khan, and that extorting money from them was part of Vikram Prar’s plan.
