Mohali, July 26: A special investigation team (SIT) on Monday filed the chargesheet against gangster Bhuppi Rana and five more accused, including the three shooters in the murder case of Youth Akali Dal leader Vikramjit Singh Middukhera.

The development comes almost a year after Middukhera was shot dead in Sector 71 on August 7, 2021.

As per the sources, apart from Rana, the chargesheet includes the names of three shooters – Anil Kumar alias Latth, Sajjan Singh alias Bholu, Ajay Kumar alias Sunny.

The other two who have been named are Amit Dagar and Kaushal Chaudhary, who are accused of conspiring the murder on the direction of Armenia-based gangster Gaurav Padial alias Lucky Padial. Lucky Padial allegedly leads the Davinder Bambiha gang since the gangster’s death in a police encounter in 2016.

Notably, the chargesheet does not name Padial and Shagunpreet Singh, the manager of late Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, who is accused of arranging the shooters' stay at a Kharar flat after picking them up from Sohana the day before the murder.
