What the actual story is?

Balwant Singh Rajoana who is facing gallows in the Beant Singh murder case, manhandled senior journalist Kanwar Sandhu on the jail premises after Sandhu along with dismissed cop Gurmeet Singh Pinky had gained access to the high-security prison to interview him. Authorities said Pinky connived with assistant superintendent of jails to gain entry for himself and Sandhu. Rajoana objected to Sandhu having leveled baseless allegations against him at Pinky’s behest. When Rajoana came to know that Pinky had accompanied Sandhu, he manhandled Sandhu, pushed him and punched him. Said Jail source.
