After returning to India, Congress leader and Punjab Cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu on Thursday said that he does not know who is Gopal Chawla.
“There were probably 5-10,000 pictures taken of and with me there (in Pakistan), I don't know who is Gopal Chawla,” news agency ANI quoted him as saying. Sidhu was in Pakistan to attend the groundbreaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor.
Meanwhile, Chawla, a prominent pro-Khalistan separatist leader shared his purported photograph with the Punjab Cabinet minister on social media.
Chawla is the same person who is, reportedly, involved in a terrorist attack that took place recently in Amritsar (on Nirankari Bhavan), which is Sidhu's constituency.
Three persons were killed while over 20 were injured in a grenade attack on Nirankari Bhavan in Amritsar on November 18.
In a video, Chawla can be seen openly threatening Indians.
