Mansa, October 6, 2023: As per media reports Sachin Thapan, a close aide of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi and a key accused in the Sidhu Moosewala murder case, appeared before the Mansa court after his police remand ended today.
After the Mansa police demanded his five-day police remand, the court extended it till October 10.
Advocate Satinderpal Mittal said the police, while seeking his remand admitted that Thapan was not divulging any details.
In August, the Special Cell of the Delhi Police had arrested Sachin Thapan after he was extradited from Azerbaijan.
Sidhu Moose Wala was murdered last year on May 29 in the Mansa district of Punjab as he was headed to the village of Jawahar Ke with his friends in an THAR. Their THAR was sprayed with bullets, and Moosewala was later found slumped in his seat. He was rushed to a hospital, but doctors pronounced him dead on arrival.
This incident took place just a couple of days after the Punjab government had ordered the scaling down of Sidhu Moose Wala’s security cover in a bid to end VIP culture in the state.
