Mansa (Punjab), June 3: Amid protests, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann visited the family of singer Sidhu Moose Wala at his residence in Mansa on Friday, days after the Punjabi singer was shot dead.

Bhagwant Mann reached Moosa village to extend his condolences to the grieved family. Heavy police security has been deployed outside Sidhu Moose Wala's residence.

On Sunday, the singer-turned-politician was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Jawaharke village in Punjab's Mansa district, a day after the Punjab government cut his security cover.

Locals have been protesting against Bhagwant Mann's visit to the residence of Sidhu Moose Wala. However, District Commissioner Mansa, Jaspreet Singh said that the family is cooperating with the force and are ready to meet the Chief Minister.

In a Facebook post on Sunday evening, Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar reportedly claimed responsibility for the murder of Punjabi singer and Congress leader Sidhu Moose Wala.

Goldy Brar is a close associate of gang leader Lawrence Bishnoi, who is also accused of killing the singer. Brar, also known as Satinder Singh, is involved in a number of criminal cases.

A Faridpur court issued an open-ended non-bailable arrest warrant for Brar earlier this month in connection with the murder of the District Youth Congress president, Gurlal Singh Pehalwan.
