Navjot Kaur Sidhu, who was the chief guest at the event which was happening close to the railway track where the horrifying accident took place on Friday evening, washed her hands off of any responsibility. Now, Republic TV has accessed a CCTV footage from the event venue which exposes the complicity of Navjot Kaur Sidhu. Republic TV has accessed three pieces of CCTV footage, between 6.40 pm and 7 pm, which contradict the claims of Navjot Kaur Sidhu about her whereabouts when the accident took place.
At 6.40 pm Navjot Kaur Sidhu can be seen entering the event venue with an entourage. Fourteen minutes later, that is at 6.54 pm, Ravan effigy was set on fire. A minute later, the accident takes place, in which the train mows down around 60 people. In the next footage of around the same time as that of the accident, a commotion can be seen at the spot and two minutes later, Navjot Kaur Sidhu can be seen leaving the venue.
Earlier in the day, even Navjot Singh Sidhu while terming the accident as ‘God's Fury’ spoke about his wife and said that Navjot Kaur Sidhu got to know about the accident on her way back home, after which she rushed to the hospital to be with the victims. However, the CCTV footage shows her leaving the stage within 2 minutes of the train accident.
The CCTV footage exposes the flip-flops of the wife of Punjab Minister Navjot Singh Sidhu, who initially said that she got to know about the incident when she reached home, then she said that she was enroute her home when she got to know about the accident. Sidhu’s third reaction has her saying she gave her speech and left the venue, then she said that she got to know about the accident when she was on the stage, but couldn’t see what happened.

In the video the host of the event makes a shocking statement and boasts that 5000 people are waiting on the railway tracks and all Navjot Kaur sidhu does is laugh it off.
Furthermore, Navjot Kaur Sidhu, when confronted by Republic TV blamed the victims for the mishap in which the train mowed down around 60 people. Navjot Kaur Sidhu said that there were several announcements made but the people near the track didn’t pay heed.
