Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Jawaharke village of Punjab’s Mansa district. The incident took place a day after his security was withdrawn by the Punjab police among 424 others. The death of the singer has left his fans in shock.

Moosewala, whose real name was Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, reached new heights of popularity with his songs like ‘295’, ‘So High’, ‘Issa Jatt’, ‘Tochan’ and ‘Dollar’.

However, his stardom was often overtaken by the controversies surrounding him for promoting drugs and violence through his songs.

Stepping into politics in December 2021, the Punjabi singer joined the Congress party and also contested from Mansa, however, he lost.
