Amritsar, October 19

The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has decided to constitute a three-member panel, including a member from Haryana, to visit the spot and conduct an inquiry into the Singhu killing.

“As the situation normalises, our panel will visit the site,” SPGC chief Bibi Jagir Kaur said.

She asked the Centre to conduct an impartial probe into the incident that led to the killing of Lakhbir Singh over alleged sacrilege charges.

After the SGPC’s executive body meeting today, Bibi Jagir Kaur said the Singhu incident was an outcome of emotional religious sentiments as justice was never brought in the number of sacrilege incidents of the past. “Mostly, the cases were closed after declaring the culprits to be ‘mentally ill’ or under the influence of intoxication, while avoiding to go deep into the incidents to unveil the truth,” the SGPC president said.
