Punjab Congress Chief Amarinder Singh Raja Warring on Thursday lashed out at the party's ally in INDIA bloc, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in the state over a report submitted by the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to Haryana and Punjab court which suggested that the TV interview of gangster Lawrence Bishnoi was conducted from Bathinda jail in 2023, where he was lodged.

Lawrence Bishnoi is a jailed gangster and an accused in the murder case of Punjabi singer Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moosewala.

Moosewala was murdered on May 29, 2022, in the Mansa village of Punjab. According to the police, the assailants fired several bullets at him. He was also active in politics. He had fought Punjab assembly polls from Mansa on a Congress ticket but was defeated.

Punjab Congress Chief Warring said that we cannot expect justice for Sidhu Moosewala from a government where gangsters hold such 'power' over the administration.

Taking to 'X', he wrote, "The people of Punjab demand answers, @AAPPunjab. How is it possible for a gangster to give an interview from inside a jail? How can the public feel safe when such liberties are afforded to murderers?"

The Congress leader further claimed that 'dark days' are looming for Punjab.

"We cannot expect justice for Sidhu Moosewala from a government where gangsters hold such power over the administration. Law and order have deteriorated severely, and dark days are looming for Punjab", he said.

The SIT is probing two TV interviews of jailed gangster Bishnoi, reportedly given to private channels in 2023, when he was lodged in Bathinda jail in Punjab.

He is currently incarcerated in Gujarat's Sabarmati jail, following a drug seizure case. (ANI)
