Following the direction by a city court, the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Delhi Police has registered an FIR against Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee president Manjinder Sirsa on a complaint accusing him of causing wrongful loss of over Rs 65 lakh to the committee.
A senior police official, who is privy to the development but asked not to be quoted, confirmed that the EOW had registered the FIR against Sirsa after it received the court’s direction and that an investigation is under way.
Sources in the EOW said that complainant Bhupinder Singh, a stakeholder in the funds received by the gurdwara management committee, had alleged that Sirsa, who at the time of the incident in 2013 was general secretary, had “caused a wrongful loss of public funds to the tune of Rs 65,99,729”.
