    US: Sikh leader Manjit Singh attacked in California; 3 arrested

    Sources said although the Sikh leader escaped, the attackers managed to relieve him of his turban. He went on to pay obeisance at the gurdwara.

    Speaking to media, Manjeet Singh said,''I was attacked by more than 20 people, these people have not even kept the dignity of a Gurdwara. I told my aides to not say a word and maintain peace. We will not be cowed down by all this.''

    Singh - who is also the president of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) - was earlier mobbed by protesters in New York.

    Condemning such attacks on the Sikh community, Sukhbir Badal said,''This attack has been done on behest of ISI who are anti-India, against stability of Punjab & want to create a wedge between Sikhs. Have requested Sushma ji to take up the matter with her American counterpart.''
