Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu visited the residence of slain singer Sidhu Moose Wala in Punjab's Mansa district on Monday to meet his parents.
After leaving his Patiala residence, Sidhu, who was accompanied by a few Congress leaders, reached Moosa village in Mansa at around 2:15 pm.
The cricketer-turned politician came out of the Patiala Central Jail on Saturday after serving nearly 10 months in a 1988 road rage case.
Shubhdeep Singh Sidhu, popularly known as Sidhu Moose Wala, was shot dead in Mansa on May 29 last year.
Moose Wala joined the Congress in December 2021, when Sidhu was the chief of the party's Punjab unit, and he had described the singer as a "youth icon".
Moose Wala had unsuccessfully contested the 2022 Punjab Assembly polls from the Mansa seat on a Congress ticket.
On May 20 last year, Sidhu was jailed following his surrender before a Patiala court after he was sentenced to rigorous imprisonment for a year by the Supreme Court in the 1988 road rage case.
Moose Wala was killed on May 29 last year. His parents, who have been seeking justice for their son, even sat on a protest outside the Punjab Assembly complex last month.
After coming out of jail, Sidhu had targeted the BJP-led Centre, alleging that democracy is in chains and institutions have turned slaves in the country.
He had also claimed that a conspiracy is being hatched to impose the President's Rule in Punjab.
