A delegation of SAD(B) leaders and SGPC members had submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner and the SSP last days demanding that the FIRs should be cancelled immediately as the land belongs to SGPC rather MLA Kuljit Singh Nagra and officials of the tourism department who trespass the SGPC land should be booked. DC & SSP had assured to conduct the enquiry and to do the justice.
