Sangrur, July 27

A month after the registration of a sacrilege case against a 10-year-old girl following the recovery of six torn pages of Guru Granth Sahib at Rampura village in the district on June 27, the police today started the process to quash the FIR. Their investigation has established that the act was "unintentional".

Ramandeep Singh, SHO, said: "It has come to light that the girl did not have any malicious intent. We were bound to register an FIR as per law, but we did not keep the girl in custody even for a day and she was granted regular bail on July 1. We have filed an application in the SSP office for permission to move the Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) to quash the FIR."

Malkiat Singh, president of gurdwara committee, said, "The CCTV footage clearly showed that the girl was trying to place a rumala to cover Guru Granth Sahib when she accidently tore pages." — TNS
