Sacha Sauda Conflict

Death anniversary of 1st victim observed

Tribune News Service

Sangrur, May 18

The first death anniversary of Kanwaljit Singh, a local resident who died in firing on May 17 last year near Naam Charcha Ghar of the Dera Sacha Sauda at Sunam, was observed at his residence here today.

The bhog of akhand path of Sri Guru Granth Sahib was performed on the occasion. Paying tributes to him, Jathedar of Takht Sri Damdama Sahib Balwant Singh Nandgarh expressed displeasure against the Shiromani Gurdwara Prabandhak Committee (SGPC) by saying that though the SGPC had announced to observe the first death anniversary of Bhai Kanwaljit Singh on May 18 at Gurdwara Nankana Sahib here, it did not observe the same today.
