Eyewitnesses said the accused, identified as Karamjit Singh of Chabhal village, came to the gurdwara, one of the major historic Sikh shrines, to pay obeisance as usual. He took out a gutka, tore its pages and scattered the same inside the gurdwara, they said.

Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) president Harjinder Singh Dhami condemned the act, stating that sacrilege incidents were consistently taking place across the state but the government had been silent. “These incidents are hurting the Sikh sentiments. It is the primary the responsibility of the government to unearth the conspiracy and expose the forces behind these incidents,” he said while seeking strict action against the accused.

SGPC secretary Kulwinder Singh Ramdas said a police complaint had been lodged. A huge number of devotees visit this gurdwara, 14 km from Amritsar city.
