The railway police, Sirhind, on Sunday filed an FIR and decided to investigate the torn pages of the Quran found scattered at the railway station.

Mohammad Raqib, a labourer from Uttar Pradesh, who lives at Rauza Sharif, had found the torn pages of the holy book, a Bengali translation copy, on Tuesday.

Raqib approached the Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar) leader Simranjeet Singh Mann, who wrote to Fatehgarh Sahib DC Kanwaldeep Singh Sangha, asking for an investigation.

The case was handed over to Senior Superintendent of Police, Jatinder Singh Khaira, for probe, but he forwarded it to the railway police as the pages were found at the railway station.

Vinod Kumar, Station House Officer (SHO), railway police, Punjab, said the investigation will be taken forward.

Wait for probe: Khalifa

Meanwhile, Sayyid Mohammad Sadiq, Khalifa, Rauza Sharif, appealed to the Muslim community to maintain peace.

Sadiq said the torn pages of the Muslim scripture being found was a matter of “grave misery”, but added that the community needed to keep calm and await the investigation report.
