Some Lesser Known Facts About Goldy Brar
- Goldy Brar is a gangster based in Canada, who is an ally of the Indian gangster Lawrence Bishnoi. He is infamous for committing the murder of the Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala.
- On 11 October 2020, his cousin Gurlal Brar was gunned down outside City Emporium Mall, Industrial Area, Phase I, Chandigarh, by two unidentified men.
- His father, Shamsher Singh, was given compulsory retirement after Goldy was convicted in a murder case in 2021.
- On 29 May 2022, after the Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala was shot dead by some unidentified assailants in the Jawaharke village of Mansa district, Goldy took to Facebook to claim responsibility for Moosewala’s murder. Reportedly, Moosewala was travelling in his Mahindra SUV with his friend and cousin when two cars started tailing him. The cars followed him for a while and then eight assailants, who were inside the cars attacked Moosewala with around 30 gunshots. Reportedly, the assailants used three AK-94 rifles for the attack.
- In his Facebook post, Goldy accepted killing Moosewala with the aid of his friend Lawrence Bishnoi and Sachin Bishnoi Dhattaaravala. In his post, he also talked about Moosewala’s involvement in the killing of the Akali leader Vicky Middukhera and Goldy’s cousin Gurlal Brar. He wrote,

- As soon as Goldy posted on Facebook, Lawrence also confirmed killing Moosewala through a Facebook post. Lawrence wrote,

- As per the police officials, the murder of Moosewala is the result of the rivalry between Lawrence Bishnoi and Lucky Patial gangs. While addressing the media, police said,
We are investigating the matter and we have got some leads.”
- Goldy has been running an extortion racket in Punjab from Canada at the behest of Lawrence Bishnoi for some time.
- Due to his involvement in the killing of the Youth Congress leader Gurlal Singh Pehalwan, Goldy was issued an open-ended non-bailable arrest warrant by a court in Punjab’s Faridkot district in 2021. Reportedly, Gurlal died on the spot after being shot by two unidentified men in Faridkot.
- Apparently, he was involved in a double murder case of slain brothers Paramjit and Surjit (close associates of jailed gangster Kaushal) in Gurugram in February 2022. In March 2022, a special cell of the Delhi Police arrested two sharpshooters associated with the Kala Jatheri, Lawrence Bishnoi and Naresh Sethi gang. According to police officials, Brar had committed the murder to establish supremacy in the illegal liquor business.
- In April 2022, Goldy’s another associate named Gurpreet Singh was arrested by the Punjab Police with two pistols and eight live cartridges from Kharar. Apparently, Goldy had provided him with three pistols of .30 bore, .32 bore and .315 bore to expand the criminal activities.
- Goldy Brar was mistaken for another man of the same name. In 2022, after Goldy claimed killing the Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala, a picture of another man named Goldy Brar with Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann went viral on social media. Soon, people started claiming that he was the one who had killed Moosewala. However, the person whose picture went viral later claimed that his picture was being misused on social media. He made a Facebook post, in which he wrote,
I am Goldie Brar, son of Rajinder Singh from village Jandwala. In today’s tragic incident of the murder of Sidhu Musewala, my picture is being misused on social media. I will take appropriate legal action against those people.”
