Thousands gather in Punjab's Mansa to pay final respects to Sidhu Moose Wala

Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab's Mansa district On May 29

From wearing t-shirts with pictures of Sidhu Moose Wala printed on them with the message 'legends never die' to several children dressing like him, scores of people from many places in Punjab, Haryana and other states on Wednesday assembled at a grain market in Mansa to attend the 'bhog' ceremony (funeral service) of the slain singer.

Many people were also carrying posters mentioning 'black day on May 29' and 'Moose Wala amar rahe' and demanded 'justice for Moose Wala'. Some were carrying flags with pictures of the singer.

Moose Wala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Punjab's Mansa district On May 29.

Notwithstanding the scorching heat, a large number of people including youth, children and women assembled from various parts of Punjab and other states to attend the 'antim ardas' (marking the end of last rituals for the deceased) and 'bhog' ceremony of Moosewala at the grain market.

Security personnel in large numbers were deployed at the site.

A lawyer from Jalandhar demanded that the state government should ensure justice to the family of the slain singer.

“The investigation into the murder of Moose Wala should be put on fast track and those involved in his murder be hanged to death,” he said.

Three friends from Ganganagar in Rajasthan reached Mansa at 4 am on Wednesday to pay respects to Moose Wala. “We were shocked when we came to know about the death of Moose Wala,” said one of them.

They were sporting t-shirts with pictures of Moosewala printed on them and the message 'legends never die'.

A group of youngsters, who were carrying posters of Moose Wala, came from Fatehabad and Sirsa districts of Haryana to attend the ceremony and they demanded that those behind the heinous crime be brought to justice at the earliest.

Three friends from Haryana's Panipat said they loved Moose Wala's songs and came here to attend the 'bhog' ceremony.

Several children who came with their families could be seen dressed like the singer.

A family from Ludhiana distributed badges carrying pictures of Moose Wala to people.

After Moose Wala’s killing, the state police had termed the incident as a case of an inter-gang rivalry. The Lawrence Bishnoi gang was said to be behind the murder.
