|Controversies||Anmol's Gang: Crime Spree and Takedown in Punjab: Following the capture of Lawrence Bishnoi and his cohorts on March 5, 2015, near the India-Pakistan border, Anmol reportedly formed a gang of young individuals hailing from Abohar, Punjab. This group engaged in numerous armed heists and extortion schemes. In July 2015, Fazilka police apprehended Anmol and his associates, including Sachin Thapan, Ankit Bhadoo, Ankit Jakhar, Arzoo Thalour, Praveen Gogi, and Vikram. During their arrest, authorities confiscated Rs. 1.75 lakhs, six homemade .12 bore revolvers, two .315 bore pistols, two .32 bore pistols, a .12-bore DBBL gun, and a pair of motorcycles. The Tribune

Absconder in Sidhu Moose Wala Murder Case: On 29 May 2022, Sidhu Moose Wala was killed in a drive-by shooting near Jawaharke village, Mansa, Punjab by unidentified assailants. Shortly after his death, Goldy Brar and Lawrence Bishnoi claimed responsibility for the murder through a social media post, which read,
Today, Moosewala was killed in Punjab, I, Sachin Bishnoi, Lawrence Bishnoi take the responsibility. It’s our work. Moosewala’s name surfaced in our brother Vikramjit Singh Middukhera and Gurlal Brar’s murder, but the Punjab Police did not take any action against him. We also came to know that Moosewala was also involved in the encounter of our associate Ankit Bhadu. Moosewala was working against us. Delhi Police had taken his name but Moosewala used his political power and saved his skin each time."
Anmol Bishnoi is said to be accused of Sidhu's murder. He allegedly fled from India to Kenya via Nepal and Canada a month prior to the murder of Moose Wala, while Sachin Thapan (alias Sachin Bishnoi) reportedly left with Anmol to Azerbaijan. Anmol and Sachin fled using fake passports under the names "Bhanu Pratap" and "Tilak Raj" respectively. Interpol subsequently issued a Red Corner Notice against Anmol.
In September 2022, Anmol and Sachin were apprehended in Kenya and Azerbaijan respectively as announced by Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) spokesperson Arindam Bagchi during a media briefing. The Tribune
