Representatives of several Sikh organisations reached Shalimar Bagh Gurdwara to attend the conclusion of Akhand Path held at the gurudwara following sacrilege of Guru Granth Sahib on May 18, here on Tuesday.

An atonement prayer meeting was also held. Sikh leaders demanded strict action against the miscreants and formed an 11-member committee to put pressure on the administration to nab the culprits.

They had earlier demanded the arrest of the culprits within 72 hours of the incident.

In a complaint lodged with the police, Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee president Manjit Singh alleged that, when in the morning sewadar Gurpreet Singh came to the gurdwara, he found the locks of the shrine broken.

The holy book and gutkas were missing from the place. Singh alleged that after a search, the Guru Granth Sahib and gutkas were found dumped in a garbage bin at some distance away from the gurdwara.

SGPC member Harpal Singh Palli said police had been asked to round up the miscreants by Thursday as resentment in the community was mounting up.
