The recent Punjabi film Gadaar: The Traitor starring Harbhajan Mann has sparked a controversy with the activists of the Universal Human Rights Organisation (UHRO).
The activists alleged that the police officer shown as Surjit Singh Sandhu in the film was a portrayalof the then Tarn Taran SSP Ajit Singh Sandhu, who was allegedly behind several fake encounters during the dark days of militancy.
Sandhu had reportedly committed suicide by jumping before a speeding train. The NGO claimed that suicide of SSP Sandhu was eyewash and demanded a CBI enquiry in the matter.
`Since I am from Manjha area, the policeman's appearance made me nostalgic about the dark days of militancy, when many innocent youngsters were massacred by Sandhu after being branded as terrorist. I have had a word with the writer and director of the movie, Amitoj Mann. He had confirmed that Ajit Singh Sandhu was alive,` claimed Satnam Singh Dhaliwal.
While quoting excerpts of the 2006 press conference conducted by the then DGP SS Virk, Dhaliwal said the DGP had then admitted that 300 police cats who were declared dead, were alive and living in different country with separate identities.
Dhaliwal added that some innocent was killed instead of Sandhu and now the dreaded cop is living with a different identity.
Amitoj Mann, director of the film, could not becontacted despite repeated attempts.
