"We will definitely bring Goldy Brar to India as per the treaty with America so that the families which have lost their sons and daughters find some solace. Brar was the main mastermind, and there are others as well whose records are with us," he said. He said Brar used to get his work done through Pakistan using a gang.
"We are discussing the issue at the international level so that others are brought here. They will be interrogated and there may be more revelations. Goldy Brar will be very soon in the custody of Punjab police," Mann added.

Speaking at the occasion, she said, "Soldiers from Punjab have sacrificed their lives for the country. Punjabi soldiers have given a befitting reply to enemies of the country. But nowadays, it has become a practice of the youth here to migrate to foreign countries. The youth should be motivated to join the army for the country. There should be workshops to motivate the youth."Asked about gangster Goldy Brar, the Punjab minister said, "Brar will be brought back to India soon."
Goldy Brar was the alleged mastermind in the cold-blooded murder of Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala. Canada-based gangster Goldy Brar will soon be handed over by the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to Indian law enforcement agencies, sources said.
News agency ANI has learnt from its sources that gangster Brar is currently under round-the-clock monitoring of the FBI. Brar was tracked by the FBI after he illegally entered the US from Canada. Indian agencies reportedly tipped off the FBI about Brar's movement and the Americans quickly swung into action and tracked him promptly. He was put under surveillance immediately.
Sources told the news agency that India has provided all the documentation of evidence against Brar to the US authorities and the gangster will soon be handed over to India. He is under constant monitoring of the FBI and cannot leave the United States. Goldy Brar had allegedly coordinated with gangsters Lawrence Bishnoi and others to murder Sidhu Moose Wala earlier this year.
