I am not sure how you tie the blocking session to the SQL statement that is responsible for another session being blocked when it is not the blocking sessions current SQL statement or maybe its prior statement both of which can be referenced from v$session column information, but I expect that it will be one of the SQL statements referenced by v$open_cursor for the blocking session sid.
Maybe this view will be helpful.
In the case of a deadlock the ORA-00060 trace file usually contains enough information to allow you to see the two SQL statements when the problem is a straightforward two sessions want the same row for update.
