Chandigarh | Jagran News Desk: As India continues to recover from the loss of Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu alias Sidhu Moosewala, who was brutally killed outside his ancestral village in Punjab's Mansa district on May 29, the Punjab Police has tightened the noose around the case, arresting eight people so far.

The police believe that Moosewala was murdered in retaliation for youth Akali leader Vicky Middukhera's killing that took place last year. It also suspect that Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar and jailed don Lawrence Bishnoi were responsible for his murder.
