Eight shoots came out of the cars and dismounted and opened fire on him for 30 times. He was urgently taken to the Mansa Civil Hospital, where doctors confirmed his dead. Satinder Singh alias Goldy Brar, a Canadian mobster of Punjabi heritage, claimed responsibility for the murder shortly after it occurred. Several state police departments are looking into the idea.
