Temple vandalized for mere Rs. 500


Nanak Nagar Desecration Accused offered moneyby two

, June 18: Two more men were arrested on Friday in a connection with the sacrilegious act committed at the Nanak Nagar Shiv Temple by a suspended Indian Reserve Police constable.The two suspects were arrested on the charges of wrongly motivating the accused to enter the religious place and stimulate tempers that could be damaging to the social fabric.

The police on Thursday had announced that the call details of the accused ex-cop Gurbachan Singh, son of Harbans Singh of Nanak Nagar would be examined to investigate if the matter could have been the handiwork of other mischievous elements. During the investigation, two names came up and the men were arrested yesterday.

The arrested duo have been identified as Rajinder Kumar son of Sukhdev Kumar of Nanak Nagar, a property dealer, and a UP based conman namely Suresh Kumar who at present resides in Talab Tillo.

Gurbachan Singh had entered the temple premises while talking on the phone and had been repeatedly asking the person on the phone if he would give Gurbachan Rs 500. It was during that conversation that he went inside the temple and attempted objectionable actions which led the women congregation inside to call the police.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Government is all set to probe two incidents of sacrilegious acts at Jammu, Minister for Rural Development, Panchayati Raj, Law and Justice, Abdul Haq, said yesterday.

Speaking in the Legislative Council, he said the Government would thoroughly probe Roopnagar and Nanak Nagar incidents and take stern action against the accused.

The Minister was speaking in the House, while replying to the issue raised by some legislators.

Various Sikh organizations condemned the act and expressed solidarity with their brethren.
