Earlier in the day, International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) issued Red Corner Notice (RCN) against gangster Satinderjeet Singh alias Goldy Brar, based in Canada, and gangster-turned-terrorist Harvinder Singh Sandhu alias Rinda on Thursday.
Goldy Brar was allegedly involved in the killing of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala. He had, earlier, claimed the responsibility for Moosewala's murder. "Goldy Brar is suspected to be operating from Canada while Rinda is suspected to be operating from Pakistan," a senior police official stated.
The RCN against Goldy Brar was issued on Thursday in response to a written request from the CBI, India's Interpol liaison agency. According to agency sources, the request for RCN was not sent in connection with the murder of Moosewala.
