Watch: Two Sikh groups attack each other with swords in gurudwara in Patna

Patna: Violent clashes have taken place during the Guru Govind Singh birth anniversary celebrations in Patna. Members of two factions of the Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee attacked each other with swords and sticks.

Two people have sustained minor injuries in the incident. Though the situation is now under control, tensions still prevail.

It is being said that despite a huge celebration planned at the gurudwara, there was inadequate security at there. Soon after the incident, senior administrative officers reached the force. Additional force was also called in to bring the situation under control.

Senior officers are trying to speak to leaders of the two factions to come to an amicable solution.

This is not the first time that such clashes have took place in Patna. It is said that there is huge money involved in the Gurudwara Prabandhak Committee which both the factions want to get hold of.
