With all the terrorists killed and Pathankot operation nearly coming to an end, the mystery surrounding the Gurdaspur SP Salvinder Singh is beginning to get intense media attention.
Singh’s story is now being questioned by social media users while the National Investigating Agency has decided to interrogate him as part of the probe into the deadly terrorist attack on the Air Force base in Punjab’s Pathankot.
Singh said, “When we stopped the car, 4-5 persons rushed towards me. Those people had AK 47 with them. They took my mobile phone. They were speaking in Urdu. I was blindfolded, I could not see anything.”
According to reports, Singh was released after being abducted briefly but his kidnappers allegedly used his car to enter the Air Base.
Many have cast doubt over his story and agencies are verifying his statements with the Intelligence Bureau having visited all the places the senior cop mentioned.
Even the NIA chief Sharad Kumar has described Singh’s actions murky adding that he will be questioned.
Seven security forces personnel lost their lives in the operation that continued for three days.
Here’s a synopsis of social media conversation:
Lot of things said by Gurdaspur SP & the cook doesn't add up. Why would the terrorists let them off, while the innova driver was killed?

SSPs in Punjab's districts are hand-picked by Deputy CM & Home Minister Sukhbir Badal. Buck stops with him for Gurdaspur SSP's conduct. KP

The Gurdaspur SP's story is not adding up. Just not adding up. Look at it this way; that way; any way. It still doesn't add up to any logic.

My #conspiracytheory: Gurdaspur SP was part of a drug-smuggling ring from Pak, and blackmailed into bringing in the Pathankot attackers.
