Amritsar, September 17

In a major relief to former Jathedar of Takht Sri Patna Sahib Giani Iqbal Singh, the Patna court has directed the Takht Patna Sahib Management Board to reinstate him.

The court has directed the Takht management to extend him all benefits applicable since March 2019, when he was unceremoniously removed from the post.

Meanwhile, board president Avtar Singh Hit could not be contacted despite repeated attempts. A petition was filed by one Manmeet Singh, under Article 77 of the Constitution and Bylaws of Sri Takht Harimandir Ji, Patna Sahib, Patna city, challenging the grounds of Giani Iqbal Singh’s expulsion. — TNS
