Chandigarh: As the chase begins for gangster Goldy Brar aka Satinderjeet Singh, the main accused in the Punjabi rapper-cum-singer Sidhu Moosewala’s killing, he is virtually living a reboot version of the character ‘Don’ from the Bollywood cult classic ‘Don,’ changing his location from one city to another and one country to another.
After the information came that about a dozen members of the Devinder Bambiha gang are chasing him, Goldy Brar shifted his base to California in the US. His latest location was found to be in Fresno City in California. According to the sources, Brar has applied for political asylum in Sacramento city of US fearing persecution and threat to his life in Canada. He has reportedly hired two lawyers.
Notably, some namesakes of Goldy Brar were recently beaten up in Canada by the Moosewala fans. Added to that is the fact that there is a looming threat of Bambiha gang members chasing him, and these two reasons may have forced him to take the decision to shift base, sources said. He has moved to a safe house in California.
Earlier, the Bambiha gang had floated a WhatsApp number to enroll sharpshooters to eliminate Brar. Notably, Interpol has issued a Red Corner Notice (RCN) notice against Goldy Brar after Moosewala’s killing.
Brar arrived in Canada as a student in 2017 and started working there as a lorry driver to make ends meet. He is close to Bishnoi gang leader Lawrence Bishnoi and the two have been named in the Moosewala murder along with close to two dozen other accused in the case.
Bambiha gang, which has a long pending enmity with the Bishnoi gang was headed by Devinder Bambiha, a dreaded gangster in Punjab who was killed by the police in 2016. Subsequent to his killing, the gang is headed by Lucky Padial from Armenia. Lucky Padial and Bishnoi have been at loggerheads since their student days and the enmity has continued to date.
Goldy Brar in various of his interviews has said that he killed Sidhu Moosewala for being directly or indirectly involved in the murder of Vicky Midhukhera and helping his manager Shaganpreet flee from India. Midhukhera was killed at the behest of Lucky Padial.
Brar has said that Moosewala had offered Goldy Brar Rs two crore for sparing him and that Moosewala had joined the Congress party for the reason of getting security cover.
