As per reports the SGPC had blocked paths leading to the site of Dharna. Some Sikhs who had come to join the protest were stopped by SGPC men. After this these Sikhs staged a dharna at the place where they were stopped by SGPC men.

SGPC men reportedly used force to remove these Sikhs from their site of protest. An elderly Sikh reportedly sustained injuries during this incident.

It is notable that on 27 August the SGPC had announced to file criminal cases against various persons, who were identified as culprits in the probe panel’s report. Later the SGPC took a U-turn on this issue and said that it won’t file criminal case against the culprits.

More details were awaited at the time of writing this report.
