NEW DELHI, India—Refuting the corruption charges, DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa has said that he was ready to face any kind of probe. Notably, Sirsa is facing charges of swindling INR 6.6 million of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee through fake bills.
Holding a press conference in reaction to the Delhi Court’s direction to police for registering an FIR, Sirsa claimed that no scam has occurred in DSGMC but his opponents got him indicted under corruption charges by misleading the Court.
Sirsa has further claimed that the payment against these bills was made after written approval of the then DSGMC president Manjit Singh GK and the Court has also emphasized on the need to probe Manjit Singh GK’s role in this case.
It may be recalled here that a Delhi Court had ordered the Delhi police’s crime branch to register an FIR against DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa under sections 403, 406, 420, 426, 468, 470, 471 of IPC for swindling INR 6.6 million through fake bills.
While serving as a general secretary of DSGMC in 2013, Manjinder Singh Sirsa had swindled INR 6.6 million by approving fake bills of firms like “Rising Ball Wedding and Event Planner”, “Raja Tent” and “Harsh Opticals”. These bills were approved by Manjinder Singh Sirsa only.
