Patiala, August 8

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Gobind Singh Longowal today criticised Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and Patiala MP Preneet Kaur for their “silence” on the theft of a Guru Granth Sahib ‘saroop’ from Gurdwara Ardaspura Sahib at Kalyan village in Patiala.

Holding a dharna in front of the SSP office here, the SGPC president said it was shocking that even after 17 days of the theft, the CM and the Patiala MP had not spoken a word condemning the incident.

He said the police should immediately act and arrest those responsible for the crime. He said, “If this was not done, the SGPC will be forced to protest to ensure justice in the case.” The SGPC president, along with delegation members, submitted a memorandum at the SSP office demanding recovery of the ‘saroop’ and arrest of the culprits. — TNS
