SI Dilbag Singh said he is being targeted since he has worked during militancy period in Punjab.
“A bomb was placed under my car. My car cleaner informed me about it. CCTV footage shows two men putting something under my car at around 2 am. I have worked during militancy and that’s why they kept it,” he said, according to news agency WHO.
