Security has been tightened outside the residence of Moosewala in the wake of Rahul Gandhi's visit.

Moosewala was shot dead by unidentified assailants in Mansa on May 29.

Rahul Gandhi was abroad when the killing took place and returned over the weekend.

Moosewala, who had joined the Congress December last year, had unsuccessfully contested from the Mansa seat in the 2022 Punjab Assembly elections.


On Saturday, the parents of Moosewala had met Union Home Minister Amit Shah. Earlier, Punjab Chief Minister Bhgawant Mann had also expressed grief with the family.

Senior Congress leader Partap Singh Bajwa had written to CM Mann, urging him to "transfer the murder case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) or the National Investigation Agency (NIA) so that justice can be delivered to the family at the earliest".
