Sangrur, Aug 26 (UNI) Tension prevailed in the Sunam sub-division of the district after the local Municipal Corporation on the order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court today demolished the boundry wall constructed by a gurdwara committee over a land allegedly encroached by it at College Road near Rose Garden.

The members of Gurdwara Koko Majar Committee gathered in large numbers and confronted the authorities trying to get the possession of the land. They also tried to block the road. The police resorted to cane charge to disperse the agitated crowd.

The High Court had issued the order in response to a PIL.

However, the president of the Gurdwara Committee Para Singh claimed that the state government had given the land to the Committee 60-70 years back.
