NEW DELHI: Notwithstanding a prohibition order by city police, members of a religious organisation today threatened to launch a procession tomorrow to protest against the alleged encroachment of a gurdwara in east Delhi.
The protesters plan to undertake the march from Gurdwara Sri Rakab Ganj Sahib in New Delhi to Nand Nagri Gurdwara to protest against alleged encroachment of the latter following the 1984 riots.
In a press statement, All India Sikh Conference (Babbar) claimed that they shall free the Nand Nagri Gurdwara from encroachers by 2.30 PM tomorrow.
They also accused the Delhi Police for inaction during the 1984 riots, leading to encroachment and burglary at the gurdwara premises by some miscreants.
The organisation claimed that they had written to Delhi Police twice seeking permission for the procession.
"The permission for the procession cannot be granted for law and order issues. Demonstrations can be held at New Delhi's Jantar Mantar, the designated spot for public protest in the national capital," a police official said.
