Amritsar, October 26

Akal Takht has constituted a four-member inquiry committee to investigate the complaint of 'patit Sikhs' (non-baptised) getting membership of century-old Sikh body Chief Khalsa Diwan (CKD).

The Takht also called upon the CKD management to submit the requisite declaration forms, mandatory to be furnished by the candidate before seeking a membership.

The CKD's fresh membership drive had come under the scanner when a number of complaints were received at the Akal Takht secretariat about Sikhs with shorn hair and trimmed beard being included.

Following this, Takht's Jathedar Giani Harpreet Singh had put a blanket ban on fresh appointments in the body since July 1. Before the directions could deliver, the CKD inducted around 60 new members against the vacant positions.
