The sub-committee formed to investigate the incidents of forcing the Sikh candidates to remove Kakaars for sitting in the Patwari examination held by the Punjab government at SD College, Sector 32, Chandigarh and other places has appealed to those harassed candidates to contact the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC).
Notably, SGPC President Bibi Jagir Kaur formed a sub-committee to investigate these objectionable incidents under the leadership of SGPC general secretary Advocate Bhagwant Singh Sialka.
Advocate, chairman of the sub-committee said that from time to time Sikh candidates are facing such harassment during the conduction of such examinations which is highly condemnable.
“In a meeting of the sub-committee it was decided to contact the children who have been forced to take-off their Kakaars by the agencies conducting the Patwari exams. In this case, the CCTV camera footage of the concerned institution and agency will be examined and administrators will be questioned”, said Advocate Sialka.
He said that information from the Sikh candidates who faced harassment is essential for taking action against the culprits, so he appealed to them to contact the members of the SGPC.
Advocate Sialka said that the candidates who were harassed can contact him at his number 98152-50589 as well as sub-committee members S. Ajmer Singh Khera at 98154-93157, S Amrik Singh Shahpur at 97814-09999, Bhai Gurcharan Singh Grewal at 98148-98643 and SGPC additional secretary S. Sukhdev Singh Bhurakohna at 98148-98268.
