History-Sheeters Bag Sgpc Jobs


Recommended Posts

Bathinda, July 16

Several persons with criminal background (history-sheeters) have successfully made it to the rolls of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) apparently by concealing their criminal background. The SGPC has "unknowingly" recruited several such persons who were involved in criminal activities and cases against them have been registered at various police stations in the state.

There are more than 10 persons who are criminals in police records and have been recruited by the SGPC. Many of these have already returned to mainstream but still they are criminals in the police records. The only difference is that the police treats them as 'silent' presently, but many of them have still not changed their ways.

A petition filed under the Right to Information in the office of the DIG (Border Range), Amritsar, reveals that many persons with criminal background are working with the SGPC.

According to records of police station Kila Lal Singh, one of the persons with criminal background is on duty at the Golden Temple from the past several years. And as per rules, the police has to keep an eye on him.

A person who has three cases registered against him at the Majitha police station is an employee of the SGPC. And the SGPC did not find it important to verify his credentials before giving him a job.

Similarly, another person succeeded in getting an SGPC job despite being booked at Kalanaur police station and is working as a sewadar. A person booked at the Sarai Amanat police station is also on duty at a historic gurdwara.

According to the information provided by the Bathinda SSP, one of the persons against whom cases under theft and arms Act has been registered at the Maur police station is employed with the SGPC.

Another such person is working at Gurdwara Mastuana Sahib, Talwandi Sabo. Interestingly, head of 'dhadi jatha' at this gurdwara has a tainted background.

Also, there are persons on the SGPC rolls in other gurdwaras against whom cases have been registered at Banur, Faridkot, Tarn Taran and Gurdaspur police stations.

Makkar unaware

When SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar was informed about persons with tainted background on SGPC rolls, he said: "You give us the list. We will sack them." When asked a reason for such recruitments, he said when sewadars are recruited, most of them are needy and no police verification is done. However, when permanent recruitments are done, police verification is carried out. He said he had no such information on this issue.
