After Golden temple lynching, another killed in Kapurthala gurdwara
According to reports, police arrived and took the man into custody but the killing by the crowd happened after that, early morning Sunday. The Sikhs gathered there were demanding that the man accused of sacrilege be handed over to them and there followed a scuffle leading to his death. On Saturday, a man hailing from UP was lynched after he reportedly committed “sacrilege" inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Golden temple in Amritsar while the prayers were going on in the evening.

NEW DELHI, Dec 19: A day after the incident of lynching in the Golden temple in Amritsar of a man for alleged sacrilege, another one was beaten to death at a gurdwara in Kapurthala, also in Punjab, on Sunday.

Videos on social meda show a crowd wielding swords attacking the man. The man was accused of “disrespecting" the Nishan Sahib (Sikh flag). The incident of the alleged sacrilege happened at 4 am at the gurudwra in Nijampur village in Kapurthala district.

According to reports, police arrived and took the man into custody but the killing by the crowd happened after that. The Sikhs gathered there were demanding that the accused be handed over to them and there was a scuffle. The identity of the man has not been revealed.

"I have taken serious note of the unfortunate incidents in Amritsar and Kapurthala. Any attempt to violate the communal harmony in the State will be dealt with a firm hand. Stern action will be taken against all those disturbing the law and order in Punjab," the DGP said.

Golden temple lynching

On Saturday, a man hailing from Uttar Pradesh was beaten to death after he reportedly committed “sacrilege" inside the sanctum sanctorum of the Golden temple in Amritsar. While the prayers were going on in the evening, he scaled the railing and entered the sanctum sanctorum and insulted the Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikhs, by stepping on the ‘rumala sahib’ (cloth around the holy book), and picked up the sword placed there. When he was caught and being taken to the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) office, an angry crowd thrashed him, leading to his death.

Akali leader Parkash Singh Badal said the reprehensible sacrilege has caused “deep anguish and outrage in the minds of the Sikh masses all over the world". He said the possibility of a conspiracy cannot be ruled.

Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi has ordered a probe into the incident.
