A Dera Sacha Sauda supporter was shot dead by some unidentified assailants on Thursday morning in Punjab’s Faridkot district. He was an accused in the sacrilege incident in 2015. Police said Pradeep was opening his shop in Kotkapura at the time of the incident and Pradeep’s bodyguard was also shot dead in the attack. On the other hand, gangster Goldie Brar has claimed responsibility for this murder. Goldie Brar is the mastermind behind the murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Musewala. The entire incident was recorded in the CCTV camera installed nearby. Pradeep was one of the accused in the 2015 theft case of a ‘beed’ (copy) of the Guru Granth Sahib in Faridkot. He was currently out on bail.
