He claims that the Punjab police have framed him in the incident. The audio clip is cut to frame him with allegations in the Bargari case. Sukhjit Singh states that he sent Rupinder Singh, one of the suspects in the incident, money for his operations as he had hurt his spine during the Kotakpura incident where 2 Sikhs died.
