A group of Nihangs scuffled with policemen manning a checkpoint on Taran Wala bridge here on Saturday. One of them, identified as Tejbir Singh Khalsa, was booked by the police.

Sub-Inspector Partap Singh told the police that he along with a police party was present at a checkpoint at Taran Wala bridge when a group of Nihangs arrived there. Immediately after reaching there, the Nihangs informed them about the removal of the posters they had pasted in view of the upcoming Operation Bluestar anniversary on June 6.
