Post Suspended SGPC employee held for Kalanaur sacrilege

The district police nabbed a suspended SGPC employee for allegedly desecrating a Sikh religious book at Kalanaur last night.
DIG (Border) Kunwar Vijay Partap Singh said Baljit Singh (48) was responsible for yesterday’s incident wherein some pages of a “gutka” were found torn near the Kalanaur grain market.
He said the accused was suspended by the SGPC for allegedly drinking liquor. He is at present posted at Jind in Haryana.
A case under Section 295 (A) (defiling of a religious place) was registered.
The DIG said the SIT formed to probe the matter acted on specific inputs before zeroing in on the accused. “We first questioned residents living near the grain market where the pages were found. We were told about the reputation of the accused who had been suspended by the SGPC on at least eight occasions for “various acts of misdemeanour.” We learnt that Baljit Singh nursed a grudge against one Baj Bahadur living in his neighbourhood. After questioning Baj, we came to know that Baljit had thrown the torn pages in front of his Baj’s house out of sheer vengeance,” said the DIG.
