In a massive relief to Navjot Singh Sidhu, he and his wife have been given clean chit by the judicial probe done by Jalandhar Divisional commissioner, B Purushartha in the Amritsar train tragedy. 61 people were killed in a horrible accident on Dusshera evening when a train ran over people who were busy enjoying festivities.

The nearly 300-page report finds the Sidhu couple not guilty of any offences. It will come as a major shot in the arm for Sidhu who was criticised heavily by political parties at that time. The report says that the main organiser Madan Mithu had no permission to hold Dusshera celebrations near the railway tracks and there was no management for crowd control.

The report will be soon sent to Punjab CM Amarinder Singh, who is expected to take decisions accordingly.
