After the videos, ‘Confessions of a Punjab Police Cop’ were uploaded on YouTube, I was approached last week by a lady, Kamaldeep Kaur, who said that she was Bhai Balwant Singh Rajoana’s sister. She said that I should have taken his version on issues concerning him. I told her that this was not done as these were video reports and videography was not possible in jail. I said she could send the version and I would use it as it is still a developing report. She said that I should meet Rajoana for the version and offered to arrange the meeting in jail.” [Read full reaction of Kanwar Sandhu]
