Nihang Sikh kills youth in Punjab Gurudwara over alleged sacrilege

A Nihang Sikh allegedly killed a young man in Punjab's Kapurthala district over suspicions of sacrilege, police said on Tuesday. The Nihang, identified as Ramandeep Singh, uploaded a video on social media taking responsibility for the murder.

"A Nihang Sikh killed a youth at Gurudwara Shri Choura Khooh Sahib over suspicions of sacrilege. Senior Police officials are present at the spot. Further investigation is underway," Phagwara SP Gurpreet Singh said in a statement.

Nihangs are a Sikh warrior group believed to be created by Fateh Singh, the son of Guru Gobind Singh. Also known as Guru Ki Fauj, they are seen in dark blue attire and turbans, and are known to carry arms.

In recent times, they have been involved in many cases of violence often over alleged sacrilege - disrespecting something considered holy by Sikhs.

In November last year, a policeman was killed in the exchange of fire that resulted from the tension between two Nihang groups vying for control of a Gurudwara at Sultanpur Lodhi. Five people were arrested in the incident.
