Capt Sidhu counters Sukhbir’s allegations
Chandigarh: Leader of United Sikh Movement Capt Channan Singh Sidhu (retd) has categorically denied that he ever met Justice Ranjit Singh (retd) and AAP leader Sukhpal Singh Khaira or that he had any links with the Congress.
In August, Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal had alleged on the floor of the House that the report of the inquiry commission had been “scripted” at the
farmhouse of Capt Sidhu. He had distributed call records, claiming those to be of the above mentioned leaders, the chairman of the Commission and two ministers. These, it was alleged, synchronised with the tower located near the farmhouse of the United Sikh Movement leader.
Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had, however, rubbished this claim.
Sidhu has categorically denied that he had anything to do with the report of the Justice Ranjit Singh Commission on 2015 sacrilege incidents. “Why would a retired judge of a High Court come to me for advice on the report or get it vetted from me? I am a retired defence officer and do not know the finer law points like him. I also do not have any friendly relations with the ministers, as claimed by Badal. He has been talking through his hat. His men came and just shot pictures of my farmhouse and concocted the whole story,” he maintained.
