Sukhdev Singh, a resident of Austria, said here today that the Punjab government had sent a special plane to Vienna to bring the body of Sant Parmanand killed in a gurdwara on May 24, but had failed to visit the gurdwara where no “prakash” was being held for three “Birs” of Guru Granth Sahib for 14 days.
The Austrian resident rued that Akal Takht had directed the SGPC to form a fact-finding committee some weeks ago, but the latter had failed to do so. He said even members of the Indian Embassy were adopting a half- hearted approach to solve their problems.
A Dal Khalsa spokesman urged the SGPC to constitute the fact-finding committee to find out the truth behind the Vienna incident. He said the SGPC should initiate steps to boost the morale of Sikhs and draw up programmes to meet promises made to Sikhs in Vienna.
