The former chief minister spent the night at the Musa village home of Sidhu Moosewala on Tuesday night. In connection with an election case registered against Channi during the Punjab election, Channi received a summons from the Mansa police that day, requesting that he appear before the CJM court on January 12.
In an interview at Moosewala’s house, Channi said, “When I entered Punjab, the police told me I would be arrested if I went to Moosewala’s house, but I told them to arrest me if they want.” “I am going to meet the parents of Moosewala. I will express my sorrow to them.”
A false case was filed against him and Moosewala on the last day of campaign on a complaint by a political party under Section 188, which is a bailable offense. The police had presented a challan against him and Moosewala after Moosewala’s death. In spite of being here for two months after the poll, I was never called by the police for a statement in this case,” he said, adding, “The government is harassing the family of Moosewala.” “I will request that the government investigate his murder case seriously and not harass his family.”
Moosewala and the former Chief Minister were charged with conducting roadshows after the election campaign ended.
