Anticipatory bail plea rejected

Wednesday 20th July 2022 07:51 EDT

Less than a month after Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala’s manager Shagan Preet Singh filed an anticipatory bail plea in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Justice Anoop Chitkara on Monday dismissed the plea. Punjab Police had earlier submitted that there was sufficient prima facie evidence revealing that he was the “main conspirator” in last year’s murder of Youth Akali Dal leader Vicky Middukhera. In its status report placed before Justice Chitkara’s Bench, DSP Sukhnaaz Singh said, “In view of the facts and circumstances, it is evident that there is sufficient prima facie evidence on record which reveals that the petitioner is the main conspirator, who hatched conspiracy with (accused) Gaurav Patial for eliminating Vicky Middukhera.”
