While he was waiting at the gate, three motorcycles rushed towards him and started firing at him. According to the sources, after a seven-round of firings, the shooters fled. Later, the local police took Gurlal to the nearby hospital where he was declared dead. A day after the incident, a gangster named Davinder Bambiha took to Facebook to take responsibility for the murder. He wrote,
It was revenge for Lavi Deora’s murder that was committed by Gurlal Brar and his gang in Kot Kapura, Punjab.”

The local police registered a case against Dilpreet Singh Dhahan aka Baba who reportedly provided arms for Gurlal’s murder, and the arms were recovered from a nullah in the industrial area of Chandigarh. Later, the motorcycles were also identified which were provided by the gangsters Gurvinder Singh and Gurmeet Singh alias Geeta to the shooters named Neeraj Chaska and Mandeep Mandy. In 2021, the main shooter in the murder case was identified named Beant Singh. The industrial area police of Chandigarh were criticised for not identifying Gurlal Brar as a wanted criminal. The murder case took a new twist when on 29 May 2022, the Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead. On the same day, Gurlal Brar’s cousin brother Goldy Brar took to Facebook to take responsibility for Sidhu’s death. Goldy wrote,
I, along with Sachin Bishnoi Dhattaranwali, Lawrence Bishnoi group, take responsibility for the killing of Sidhu Moose Wala. His name came up in connection with the murder of Vicky Middukhera and Gurlal Brar and despite this, the police did nothing.”
