Maloy Krishna Dhar did not tell his wife when he was holding secret talks with Khalistani terrorist, Gurbachan Singh Manochahal. “Once during the height of Punjab militancy, I was given the task to negotiate with Manochahal. I contacted him through a journalist source. I was blindfolded and taken a few hundred kilometres from Amritsar. After three hours of negotiations, I was blindfolded again and taken back,” recalls Dhar. Later, he narrated this incident to his wife Sunanda, who freaked out.
