“The Government of India should also press for immediate registration of case, arrest and action against the culprits,” she said in a statement.

A mob on Friday reportedly attacked Gurdwara Nankana Sahib where Sikhism founder Guru Nanak Dev was born. Reports suggested that hundreds of angry residents at Nankana Sahib pelted the Sikh pilgrims with stones.
