Singer Sidhu Moose Wala was cremated in Punjab’s Mansa district on Tuesday, two days after he was shot dead.

Thousands turned up in Jahawarke, the native village of the singer, to pay their last respects.

Earlier in the day, Moose Wala’s body was brought to his home from the Mansa Civil Hospital amid tight security. An anti-riot squad has been deployed by the Punjab Police to prevent any untoward situation.

Moose Wala’s supporters shouted slogans against the Aam Aadmi Party-led Punjab government and sought death sentence for his killers, The Indian Express reported.

Moose Wala, who fought the Punjab Assembly polls on a Congress ticket, was murdered a day after his security cover was withdrawn by the state government.

“We want justice for the Sidhu Moose Wala,” a supporter identified as Randeep Singh told the newspaper. “Punjab Police officials responsible for the negligence should also be booked and sent to jail.”
