Singer Sidhu Moosewala had 19 “firearm wounds” on his body, caused by bullets and pellets, and died within 15 minutes of the attack, according to the post-mortem report.
In the autopsy report, it has been revealed that a bullet and a part of another was found lodged in the body. The report said other bullets tore through the body, causing entry and exit wounds. It is estimated at least seven bullets had hit him, besides pellets.
He had no injury on the face or skull, and died possibly because of rupture of lungs and liver by the gunshots. A board of five doctors had performed the autopsy.
In all, around 30 rounds were fired by the assailants at Moosewala’s car. The Punjab Police have so far made one arrest in the case, besides questioning three gangsters.
As the post-mortem report was made public, gangster Lawrence Bishnoi’s nephew Sachin Bishnoi on Thursday owned responsibility for the killing. He told a news channel Moosewala had harboured Youth Akali Dal leader Vicky Middukhera’s killers.
Besides a concert in a Gurugram club on June 4, Moosewala was to perform in Canada and US next month. On July 23, he was scheduled to perform at Vancouver, July 24 at Winnipeg, July 30 at Toronto and July 31 at Calgary in Canada.
In the US, he was to hold a live concert at New York on August 5, Chicago on August 6, Fresno on August 12 and Bay Area on August 13.
