Amritsar, August 22

The Akal Takht-appointed three-member committee to probe the case of missing 267 'saroops' of Guru Granth Sahib is likely to submit its findings on Sunday. Sources said the probe committee had found the involvement of some publication employees of the SGPC.

Members of the committee questioned the present and former employees of the SGPC during the course of investigation. They explored the documents of the publication department and also consulted the chartered accountant firm dealing with the SGPC.

The snail's pace of the probe has "irked" the Sikh sangat. Opposition parties have been describing the incident as another instance of inept handling of the SGPC and interference by the Shiromani Akali Dal in its affairs.

The findings of the committee will be submitted to Akal Takht acting Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh. Subsequently, the findings could be deliberated at the next meeting of the five Sikh high priests, to be held on August 24.

After retired judge of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Justice Navita Singh, withdrew her name from the Akal Takht-appointed two-member committee to probe the case, two more officials were assigned to join advocate of the Telangana High Court, Ishar Singh, the other member of the probe committee.
