Jaspal Singh said the burglars have stolen cash from small donation box while they have failed to break the lock of another big donation box. They used swords and other instruments lying in the Gurdwara to break the lock of big donation box (Goluk) but failed in the attempt.

He said police rushed to spot to ascertain the facts. “Miscreants have no religion and as far as this incident is concerned, it seems the work of drug addicts, because they have lit a number of match sticks while stealing the money,” he said and appealed media not to give religious colour to the incident.
