To mark the anniversary of Operation Bluestar, a blood donation camp was held by the Akaal Purkh Ki Fauj (APKF) here on Monday.

The APKF has been organising the camp for the past over 25 years to remind the government that the community, which sacrificed a lot for the country, was victimised in a communal pogrom.

The blood donation camp organised by the APKF on June 6 to commemorate the Army operation at the Golden Temple was inaugurated at Jason Multispeciality Hospital, Maqboolpura after saying of prayers.
