Senior Akali Dal leaders were made to face the full wrath of Sikh protesters at a Gurdwara Sahib in Kapurthala where an Akhand Path has been organised for peace in the state. The Sikh protesters entered the Gurdwara sahib, passing the barricades put up to restrict their entry.
Senior SAD leaders, including former MLA and District Planning Committee chairman Sarabjit Singh Makkar, Istri Akali Dal president Bibi Jagir Kaur, former minister Upinderjit Kaur, party district president Jarnail Singh Wahid, SGPC member Sarwan Singh Kular, had to run for their life as Sikh activists brandishing swords and other weapons invaded the gurdwara premises.
On seeing the protesters, SAD leaders left the venue under security cover. The protesters raised slogans against SGPC president Avtar Singh Makkar. They later smashed the windowpanes of the vehicles of SGPC member Harminder Kaur and local SAD leader Amarjit Singh Dhapai.
