Dhami said that Sikh sentiments were hurt by the act of the woman Archana Makwana, and therefore a complaint has been filed against her. He said that the woman has already apologise for the act, and added people should not do such act that requires to apologise later.

Talking about the development, General Manager of Sri Darbar Sahib Bhagwant Singh Dhangera said that images of Makwana doing Yoga in the premises appeared on social media, CCTV cameras were checked to verify. After analysing the footage, it was found that the woman posed in a Yoga position for only about 5 seconds.

As a result, action has been initiated against three sevadars – Gaganpal Singh, Harjinder Singh and Palwinder Singh – over the allegations of dereliction of duty. Two of these employees already have been suspended, and the other has been fined ₹5,000 and transferred to Gurdwara Garhi Sahib Gurdas Nangal.

Bhagwant Singh Dhangera added that woman’s behavior has hurt the sentiments of the Sikhs, due to which a police complaint has been filed against the girl.
