Hindustan Times (Bathinda) - - Punjab -

BARNALA : The Pun­jab Po­lice’s spe­cial in­ves­ti­ga­tion team (SIT) on 2015 po­lice fir­ing recorded the state­ment of ad­vo­cate and for­mer MP Ra­jdev Singh Khalsa at his res­i­dence on Fri­day.

DSP Vib­hore Ku­mar and in­spec­tor Anil Bhanot stayed at Khalsa’s res­i­dence for an hour to record the state­ment. Sources said Khalsa had claimed in his state­ment that be­fore the grant of par­don to Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, a meet­ing was held be­tween the then deputy chief min­is­ter Sukhbir Badal and the dera chief at the res­i­dence of ac­tor Ak­shay Ku­mar in Mum­bai.

“I have sub­mit­ted de­tails of my source and the ev­i­dence of such a meet­ing to probe of­fi­cers. A deal for par­don to the dera chief and screen­ing of his film was struck, be­sides the pro­mo­tion of Ak­shay’s movie by the govern­ment. I can­not dis­close more,” Khalsa said.
