  • As per the police, while one group has the possession of 103 acres of land at Sursing village, another occupies 450 acres.
  • The police said elder brother Avtar Singh's son Prem Singh along with his armed supporters focible tried to take possession of land occupied by younger brother Gurbachan Singh.

As many as 100 followers of Avtar Singh, head of Gurdwara Baba Bidhi Chand Sect, Sursing, 25 km from here, have been booked in two criminal cases.

The property dispute between two brothers of the sect is said to be reason behind the FIRs. Avtar Singh was nominated head of the sect after the death of Baba Daya Singh on January 20, 2014. Gurbachan Singh, younger brother of Avtar Singh, has been at loggerheads with his brother over the sect property.

Many gurdwaras and educational institutions are being run by the sect, which has more than 700 acres of agriculture land.

Armed followers of the warring sides came face-to-face with each other over the possession of land at Sursing village today. The Bhikhiwind police booked 50 supporters of Baba Avtar Singh.

Meanwhile, the Chabal police booked the same number of supporters for creating disturbance at a meeting organised by the police and the administration to sort out the dispute at Chabal village. DSP Sucha Singh Bal said investigations were on in the matter.
