Chandigarh, July 5
A picture showing 19-year-old shooter Ankit Sirsa posing with bullets spelling out 'Sidhu Moosewala' before the singer was killed has surfaced online.
Ankit Sirsa, arrested for killing Sidhu Moosewala, fired at least six rounds from two pistols at the Punjabi singer from a close range, police said on Monday.
Sirsa, 19, was one of the youngest shooters involved in Moosewala's killing and the "most desperate", they said.
Sirsa was arrested by the Delhi Police's Special Cell on Sunday night along with Sachin Bhiwani (25), who was responsible for harbouring four of the shooters involved in Moosewala's killing.
The two are part of the Lawrence Bishnoi and Goldy Brar gang alliance, according to police.
A resident of Haryana's Sersa village, Sirsa has also been named in two other cases of attempt to murder in Rajasthan, the police said.
Sirsa is a close aide of the main shooter, Priyavrat alias Fauji, he said. Priyavat was arrested by the Delhi Police's Special Cell team from Kutch on June 19.
Police sources said Sirsa shot Moosewala at least six times.
Police also recovered photos of Sirsa brandishing pistols.
