According to media reports, the parents of arrested Sikh youth have alleged that SGPC was framing their innocent boys in false case. On the other hand SGPC sources say that the task force’s action against a group of ‘agitated’ Sikh youth was used as last resort as these youth were violating the maryada with the Darbar Sahib precincts.

Sikh circles have raised serious concerns over incidents of clash between Sikh youth and SGPC’s task force on 6 June for second year in a row.
