Popular punjabi singer, Sidhu Moose Wala who had joined the Congress before the Punjab elections, has been shot dead.

Moose Wala had contested the Assembly polls on a Congress ticket from Mansa. He was defeated by AAP’s Dr Vijay Singla with a margin of 63,323 votes. Hailing from Moosa, a village in Mansa district, Moose Wala had joined the Congress amid much fanfare in November last year. With Congress granting him ticket from Mansa Assembly constituency, then sitting Mansa MLA, Nazar Singh Manshahia, had revolted against the party saying that he would oppose the candidature of the controversial singer.

The incident took place in Mansa city of Punjba. Following the shootout, Sidhu was immediately rushed to a hospital in Mansa where he has been admitted in a critical condition.
