Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) members on Monday announced that they would initiate legal action against the present management of Sant Singh Sukha Singh (SSSS) Group of Educational Institutions for fraudulently selling the property. Addressing mediapersons, RMS Chinna, secretary, KCGC, said soon the KCGC-led management committee would file a lawsuit against the present management, demanding high level probe into the matter.
“Legal action will be taken along with enquiries conducted into the illegal transactions that occurred during the tenure of the present management. Also, three-way probe has been initiated against the alleged accused,” he informed. Recently, the KCGC has constituted a 12-member management committee, comprising of members from the CKD, to probe the matter. The Akal Takht too has constituted a committee to conduct enquiry of entire matter as the land had been bequeathed in the name of 10th Sikh Guru as per Tamliknama by philanthropist Bhai Sant Singh in 1893.
“The CKD too has constituted a five member committee to probe and report the conduct of the two alleged accused, Jagdish Singh and Kuljit Singh, who are also members of the CKD,” said Nirmal Singh, president, CKD.
The entire matter started in 2017, when as per investigations alleged fraudulent registration of properties came into light. “The director or any member of SSSS management does not hold any right over the land. As per the provisions of the Tamliknama, the land cannot be sold as it was in the name of Guru Sahib and the properties were to be used for the purpose of educational pursuits. So, these transactions were done ‘illegally’,” said Chinna.
