Patiala: Man held for sacrilege attempt in broad daylight | Chandigarh News


PATIALA: A middle-aged man was held for attempting sacrilege in Gurudwara Sahib of a village in Nabha of Patiala district on Saturday.
The CCTV footage of the incident has gone viral on social media.
The police have identified the accused as Jagdeep Singh, 45, of Dittupur Jattan village in Patiala. He allegedly entered the premises of his village Gurdwara Sahib on Saturday to pay obeisance, but later, in the presence of staff members and Granthi (who recite prayers), the accused attempted to commit the sacrilege by removing Rumala Sahib (cloth placed to cover Sri Guru Granth Sahib).
The staff members present at the Gurudwara Sahib claimed that the accused picked up the sword kept near Sri Guru Granth Sahib after the staff immediately reached and tried to nab him.
The members of the Sikh community were also annoyed as the accused failed to cover his head with a piece of cloth despite the presence of Sri Guru Granth Sahib as per the Sikh rituals meant for the visitors.
The police said that the accused was mentally upset, besides being a cancer patient. The police claimed that he was undergoing treatment for cancer in Ludhiana.
“The accused was nabbed by the staff of the village Gurdwara Sahib. We have registered a case against him under sections 295 A and 380 of Indian Penal Code on the complaint of committee member of the village Gurdwara,” said station house officer Sukhdev Singh.
He added that the accused will be produced before the court and his police remand will be sought for interrogation.
