Takht Sri Damdama Sahib was attacked overnight by a thus who attempted to rob the Golak. The thugs entered through the Takht’s back entrance where they smashed glass doors to get in. The Toshe Khane (Treasury Chest) was also broken into. Another attempt was made to break the door where the Shastars of Guru Sahib are kept.
At a time when the Damdama Sahib Jathedar is given full security, it’s sad that the 5th Takht got broken into so easily. The Jathedar’s security appears to be more important than Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
