Four hurt in brawl at US gurdwara

Greenwood (US), April 16

Police said a brawl at a gurdwara in suburban Indianapolis left four persons with minor injuries. Greenwood Assistant Police Chief Matthew Fillenwarth said the police and medics responded to a verbal and physical fight involving about 150 people at the gurdwara in the city just south of Indianapolis.

He told WISH-TV that the altercation began as there was a change of leadership within the gurdwara that he said happens every two years. Fillenwarth added that it was believed that there was a worship service going on when the fight broke out.

Four persons suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, where they will be questioned by police. Police are reviewing surveillance video from the shrine and questioning other participants in the fight. — AP
