Amritsar, January 31

SGPC is to decide its next move tomorrow in view of the violation of ‘Maryada’ (conduct) and bloody clash between the police and the two Nihang factions at Gurdwara Sri Akal Bunga at Sultanpur Lodhi on November 23.

The SGPC has called up a special general house tomorrow at its headquarters to gather the view point of the members before proceeding in the matter.

The dispute was over the possession of Gurdwara Sri Akal Bunga between the two faction of Nihangs. A group headed by Nihang Maan Singh, attempted to take over its control. The situation turned ugly when the police intervened to vacate the gurdwara premises leading to clash.

CM Bhagwant Singh Mann was charged of ‘religious misconduct’ by the Akal Takht after taking into consideration the SGPC panel’s probe report into the incident.

Akal Takht Jathedar Giani Raghbir Singh had held the CM, as he holds the Home Department, responsible for mishandling the situation. It was alleged in the report that the police personnel had opened fire, released tear gas while disrupting the ongoing ‘Akhand Path’ and entered the gurdwara premises without bothering to remove their shoes.
