The chief ‘sewadar’ of Bibangarh gurdwara was allegedly killed inside the premises by a community member, who then perched himself on the structure’s dome to evade arrest.

Nihang Charanjit Singh (40) slashed Nihang Piara Singh’s (45) neck with a sharp weapon on Thursday after a dispute, police said.

“Charanjit, after killing Piara, climbed on the ‘gumbad’ (dome) of the gurdwara. It took a lot of effort to bring him down and arrest him,” a police official said.

Police have registered a case of murder and launched an investigation into the case, the official said, adding that the accused was being questioned.
