Amritsar – The Sarbat-Khalsa-appointed parallel “Jathedars” issued a hukamnama in Amritsar on Wednesday, excommunicating former SAD minister Sucha Singh Langah.
The development comes a day before the emergency meeting of Jathedars of five Takhts to discuss the matter.
The hukamnama stated that any person continuing relations with the excommunicated person, too, would be given religious punishment.
Gurdwara Chhota Ghallughara (Gurdaspur) secretary Buta Singh was also excommunicated because he allegedly had illicit relations with a woman.
All parallel “Jathedars” Bhai Dhian Singh Mand, Bhai Baljit Singh Daduwal, Bhai Amrik Singh Ajnala, Bhai Major Singh and Bhai Suba Singh were present.
Jathedar Mand said, “Langah raped a helpless woman by misusing his political power. This is against the tenets of Sikhism.”
