The parents of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala met with Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Chandigarh on Saturday June 4. Sidhu Moose Wala was shot May 29 in Jawaharke village of Mansa district.

Moose Wala’s family had earlier written a letter to Amit Shah asking for a central agencies investigation into the Punjabi singer’s murder, according to Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.

Meanwhile, in a video message broadcast by Sidhu Moose Wala’s father, Balkaur Singh, on Saturday, the Punjabi singer’s father tried to put an end to all speculation regarding his participation in the Sangrur Lok Sabha constituency by-elections.

Singh said, “I will not contest the election now. My son was cremated not long ago. Everything that is discussed on social media about contesting the elections hurts.

Singh also called on people not to spread unnecessary rumors and said he would present his thoughts on the matter in front of everyone on June 8.

Former Rajasthan Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot will travel to Punjab on Monday to meet the Punjabi singer’s family members. Moose Wala was a Congressional candidate in the 2022 legislative election.

On Friday, Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann visited Moose Wala’s home and assured his family that his killers would soon be put behind bars.
