The motive behind the killing, as admitted by Lawrence Bishnoi, was to avenge young Akali leader Vicky Middukhera’s murder. ADGP Pramod Ban said that as per police investigation, Moosewala’s hand in Middu Khera’s killing was not established. “This is just an assumption or suspicion by the Lawrence gang,” he said. As per the ADGP press communique, Lawrence Bishnoi, in a well hatched out conspiracy, to protect his brother Anmol Bishnoi and his close associate Sachin Thapan and himself had created a perfect alibi so that he and his associates are not linked to the crime and thus absolve them of their involvement in the murder of Sidhu Moosewala.
To execute this plan, he procured passports for his brother Anmol Bishnoi and Sachin Thapan on fake particulars that were issued by RPO Delhi and helped them flee the country before the execution of this murder. He settledthem abroad from where they could co-ordinate, facilitate and successfullyexecute this crime without being noticed or held culpable. Anmol Bishnoi (brother of Lawrence Bishnoi) has a criminal past (18 criminal cases).
Lastly, he was in Jodhpur Jail from where he was released on bail on 07-10-2021. Anmol Bishnoi had got his passport issued by RPO Delhi under the fake particulars.
Similarly, Sachin Thapan, a close associate of Lawrence Bishnoi and having a criminal past (12 criminal cases) also managed to get a passport issued by RPO Delhi under the fake particulars.
Based on these disclosures made by Lawrence Bishnoi during theinterrogation, a separate case FIR No 2, dated 20-06-2022 u/s 384, 465, 466,471, 120-B IPC, 12 Passport Act, and 25 Arms Act, PS Punjab State Crime, SAS Nagar was registered against Lawrence Bishnoi and his associates.
A deeper probe shall be conducted to unearth the modus operandi and the role of the officials in this unholy nexus in which the persons with criminal backgrounds managed to procure passports on fake particulars from RPO Delhi and flee the country.
