THE seven-member fact finding committee, constituted by the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) for on-the-spot assessment of the reports of a massacre of Sikhs at Hondh-Chillar village in Rewari district in Haryana, has found traces of the carnage that had taken place in November 1984 following the assassination of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The committee spoke to a few people On Sunday and they narrated “harrowing tales of the massacre” and recounted how the village gurdwara was burnt.

SGPC chief Avatr Singh Makkar said with the traces of such a massacre coming to the forth, they would demand a high-level judicial probe into the incident. He said the committee comprising SGPC general secretary S S Bhaur, members K S Panjoli and Rajinder Singh Mehta, secretary Joginder Singh Adliwal, Ram Singh and Kirpal Singh met one Manmohan Singh, an eyewitness to the carnage in which 34 men, women and children, were killed by a violent mob.
