New Delhi, September 18
The Chanakyapuri district administration’s order for the closure of Gurdwara Bangla Sahib here for alleged violation of Covid-19 norms has angered the Sikh community.
Citing the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) guidelines according to which religious places are allowed to open, but not for visitors, Chanakyapuri SDM Geeta Grover has asked the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) to follow the norms.
Shrines can open sans visitors: admn
- Order says as per norms, religious places are allowed to open, but not for visitors

The order stated a report by executive magistrate found that the management “allowed visitors/prayers inside the gurdwara” in violation of DDMA directions.
