A quarrel between two sewadars at Tibbi Sahib gurdwara in Nabha took an ugly turn when one of them lost his finger after it was bitten off by the other.

The two belong to different groups of the gurdwara committee.

The quarrel started when sewadar Jatinder Singh reportedly objected to sewadar Jagpal Singh serving langar to his relatives in the gurdwara. He then attacked Jagpal and bit off his finger.

Kuljeet Kaur and another woman present in the gurdwara tried to stop them, but in vain. In the process, Kaur, who is pregnant, was also hit. She is being treated at Nabha Civil Hospital.

Meanwhile, chief of gurdwara committee Harjit Singh said he was not in the gurdwara when the incident took place and has demanded strict action.

Station house officer (SHO) Karnail Singh said police will take suitable action.

A case has been registered against the accused under sections 323,324,506 of the Indian Penal Code on complaint of the victim.
