Amritsar, November 13

A local court has directed the police to procure CCTV footage from shops surrounding the Golden Temple complex pertaining to the clash that took place between members of the SGPC and the Satkar Committee outside the Teja Singh Samundri Hall on October 24.

The court issued orders after the police informed that the CCTV footage from the cameras that were installed in and around the SGPC office could not record the incident due to a technical fault.

Accordingly, the SHO, E-division police station, was directed again by the court to get the video footage of the said date from CCTV cameras instaled in the surrounding shops of the Galliara.

The complaint was submitted by Balbir Singh Muchchl, president of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Satkar Committee. He had alleged that besides the SGPC office, the CCTV cameras were there on the adjoining stretches and outside the shops around, but the police had never bothered to scan the footage.

As many as 30 persons were injured following an altercation outside the Teja Singh Samundri Hall, where Sikh organisations were holding an agitation over missing "saroops" on October 24.

The police had booked 60 Sikh activists in two separate FIRs on the complaint of the SGPC officials following which a cross-FIR was also registered against SGPC employees for illegal detention and injuring Sikh activists. — TNS
