Sendhwa/Barwani (Madhya Pradesh): Sendhwa town of Barwani district has surfaced into a limelight after Ahmednagar crime branch team brought two-arm peddlers Rahul Singh and Abhay Singh Sikhligar to the town for investigation into Siddhu Moosewala’s murder case.

A team of 15 members led by SDOP Sandeep Mitke of Shrirampur tehsil in Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra reached Sendhwa town on Monday afternoon and visited rural areas to gather information in connection with the case.
