Defence witness in Air India trial denies conversation.
The first major defence witness in the Air India trial has reportedly denied holding an incriminating conversation with a Sikh extremist accused of the 1985 bombing.
Earlier in the trial, a key prosecution witness testified she had overheard Raminder "Mindy" Bhandher talking in Vancouver with Ripudaman Singh Malik about the bombing of Air India flight 182. However, Bhandher claims that he was in India in the spring of 1997, when the conversation was said to have taken place.
Malik and Ajaib Singh Bagri are currently on trial for murder for the Air India bombings, which resulted in the deaths of 331 people.
