Guhla-Cheeka/ Kaithal, Harayna (August 07, 2014): It is learnt that members of newly formed Haryana Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (HSGMC) on August 06 took over control of Gurdwara Chhevin and Novin Patshahi located on Pehova road in Cheeka.

According to information available with the Sikh Siyasat News (SSN) around 1.30 pm the HSGMC supporters, led by its executive committee members Baba Baljit singh Daduwal and Avtar singh Chakku, reached the Gurdwara Sahib with around 150 supporters. There were around 14 task force members and 13 employees of the SGPC present on the premises of Gurdwara Sahib who left without putting up any resistance.

The HSGMC men faced no problem in reaching out the Gurdwara Sahib premises as local policemen and intelligence officers did not expect any such attempt today due to ongoing tension at Gurdwara Chhevin Patshahi in Kurukshetra.

“We have taken over the Gurdwara without any clash. We do not have anything against the SGPC employees who were managing the Gurdwara affairs. They can still work here under the HSGMC if they want” said Daduwal.

According to media report as soon as the information of the takeover reached the police, they swung into action and barricaded all roads leading to gurdwara.

A special force has been deployed to keep an eye on the vehicles entering from Punjab as Cheeka is the last town of Haryana on its border with the neighbouring state, fearing tension in border villages.

“We have increased the security and will not allow anyone to create a law and order problem. We have deputed special teams to prevent the entry of trouble creators from Punjab,” Cheeka DSP Gurmale Saini said.

Kaithal Deputy Commissioner NK Solanki, who also reached Cheeka, said he had directed his officers to take all steps to prevent any law and order problem in area. “Till now, the situation is under control and we hope that it would remain peaceful,” said Solanki.
