A day after media reports suggested gangster Goldy Brar, the prime suspect in the murder case of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, has been fatally shot in the US, the US Police on Wednesday rubbished the reports as ‘misinformation’.

Several media outlets, including Firstpost, had reported about Goldy Brar’s murder in the US.

Brar, who was declared a terrorist by the Home Ministry, was attacked on Tuesday evening in Fairmont and Holt Avenue, Indian media outlets had reported, citing American news channels.

The reports had suggested that Brar was attacked by unidentified assailants around 5:25 pm outside a house where he was interacting with his friend. The attackers suddenly opened fire and fled from the crime scene_._ Following this_,_ Brar and his friend were rushed to the hospital, where Brar succumbed to injuries, the reports claimed.

However, the reports had also mentioned that official confirmation was awaited.

Brar’s rivals, identified as Arsh Dalla and Lakhbir, have claimed responsibility for the attack, citing longstanding animosity, the reports suggested, citing sources.

However, the Fresno Police has now responded to Brar’s murder reports, saying that they are “untrue”.

“If you are inquiring because of the online chatter claiming that the shooting victim is ‘Goldy Brar’, we can confirm that this is absolutely not true,” Lieutenant William J. Dooley said in response to a query on the incident.

Blowing off the reports as “misinformation,” the lieutenant said that the police department is receiving inquiries from around the world.

“We are not sure who started this rumour, but it caught on and spread like wildfire. But again, it isn’t true. The victim is definitely not Goldy,” Dooley said.

The rivalry between the gangs reportedly escalated following Moosewala’s murder in Jawaharke village of Mansa on 29 May, 2022.

Lawrence Bishnoi gang had initially claimed responsibility for Moosewala’s murder. However, Brar later admitted to the crime during a televised interview where he said that Moosewala’s alleged role in the killing of Lawrence’s associate, Vicky Midukhera, compelled him to carry out the crime.

Brar confessed to masterminding the murder and purportedly dispatched six gunmen from Haryana and Punjab to execute the plan.
