Addressing Mossewala's fans, the late singer's mother said that "four months have passed since the murder and they have given enough time. However, police have failed to apprehend the real culprits behind the horrifying crime."

"We cooperated with the police and the government, yet no one did anything to bring us justice," said Charan Kaur. "It would have been better if we had delayed cremating our son until police had apprehended all those involved in his murder," the late singer's mother added.
