Sidhu was driving while Gurvinder Singh and Gurpreet Singh were accompanying him. While at a distance from the house, Moosewala’s car was suddenly fired upon indiscriminately.
Moosewala was provided security by four armed security guards. The Bhagwant Mann government, which came to power in Punjab recently, deployed only two security guards for his security.

According to Moosewala’s father Balkaur Singh, two security guards were travelling behind Moosewala’s car. But suddenly his car was overtaken by an SUV and a sedan. Each of these vehicles had four armed attackers. The assailants got down from both the vehicles and fired at Moosewala and ran away from the scene.
According to the information given by the Punjab Police, 30 bullets were fired at Moosewala. He passed away before reaching the hospital.
