Dal Khalsa calls for Amritsar bandh on June 6

Amritsar: Radical outfit Dal Khalsa today gave a call for Amritsar shutdown on June 6 on the 33rd anniversary of ‘Operation Bluestar’.

The Dal Khalsa leadership, led by its president Harpal Singh Cheema and spokesperson Kanwar Pal Singh, said the bandh would be “peaceful”.

They said the call was only for business establishments and educational institutions. Transport services will continue as usual.

The ‘Operation Bluestar’ was carried out by the Indian Army in 1984 to flush out militants from the Golden Temple, the holiest shrine of the Sikhs.
