Navjot Singh alias Isapuria Virk : “Punjabi Singer Navjot Singh’s Killer Arrested After 6 Years; Accomplice Dead”

Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : After more than five years, the Mohali district police in Punjab have finally arrested the killer of Punjabi singer Navjot Singh, also known as Isapuria Virk. The police have revealed that the killer had an accomplice who unfortunately passed away a year ago.

The news of the arrest was announced by Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Gaurav Yadav on X, formerly Twitter. “Today, after 6 years, the killers of Singer Navjot Singh @ Isapuria Virk have been arrested. Justice has been served,” he stated.

The murder of Singh took place on May 27, 2018, when he was found dead with a bullet injury on Barwala Road in Dera Bassi. The Mohali Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Sandeep Garg, revealed that the killers were identified as Abhishek alias Rajat Rana and Saurav. They were members of the Uttar Pradesh-based Rahul Khatta gang and their motive was to steal the singer’s car. While Rana has been arrested, Saurav died of a drug overdose last year.

During the investigation, it became clear that there was no personal enmity motive behind the murder. The police discovered that on the day of the incident, Singh was returning home from his music class when the accused intercepted his car. In an attempt to snatch the vehicle, the assailants fired multiple gunshots at the victim, resulting in his immediate death.

Following the shooting, the perpetrators abandoned the car upon realizing that Singh had been killed. Rajat, who was already in custody of the Uttar Pradesh police, has seven FIRs lodged against him in Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, and Haryana.

This breakthrough in the case brings a sense of closure to the family and fans of the late singer. The arrest of Singh’s killer after such a long period of time underscores the commitment and perseverance of the Mohali district police in pursuing justice for the victims of heinous crimes. The authorities have assured the public that they will continue to work tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of the community, bringing to justice those responsible for such acts of violence.
