Police sources said Sippy Sidhu had told Dhillon about the threats issued to him. A senior official said, “Sippy during his tour of Canada to promote sports had stayed with Dhillon for around 15 days. He had spoken to Dhillon in Canada about the threat to his life.” Four bullets were pumped into Sippy Sidhu at a park in Sector 27 on September 20.
According to the police, a .12 bore gun was used in the crime. A woman eyewitness, living at a short distance from the scene of the crime, had reportedly told the police that she had seen a girl running away from the spot. Before leaving home on the fateful day, Sippy Sidhu had told his mother that he was going to meet a woman friend. An SIT (special investigation team) headed by SSP Sukhchain Singh Gill was probing the high-profile murder case.
