Gurdwara clash: SAD says Congress backing activists

Amritsar, October 29

The cases registered following a clash between SGPC officials and Sikh activists in the precincts of the Golden Temple on October 24 have not gone down well with both sides.

SAD spokesperson Virsa Singh Valtoha, who visited the injured SGPC officials and staff members at Sri Guru Ram Dass Hospital in Amritsar, demanded dismissal of the case against the SGPC staff members. He said those who created ruckus and attacked SGPC officials inside the Golden Temple enjoyed patronage of the Congress government.

The satkar committee and other Sikh outfits visited the Police Commissioner's office to challenge the grounds under which the SGPC got their members booked under sections of the IPC.

Valtoha said, "They locked the gates of the SGPC headquarters twice to provoke an altercation. Had the police took cognisance of SGPC's repeated complaints about the intentions of protesters and took timely action, the unfortunate clash could have been averted."

Sri Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committee head Balbir Singh Muchchal said the Sikh activists were booked on frivolous grounds and hence the FIR should be quashed. — TNS
