a woman while she was bathing at the historical Kiratpur Sahib gurdwara.
A shocked Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has sacked the priest along with his accomplice. The two were caught filming the woman while she was taking bath at Gurdwara Baba Gurudittaji's 'sarai' (resting place for devotees) in Kiratpur Sahib on Thursday.
Takht Kesgarh Sahib jathedar Giani Tirlochan Singh, under whose jurisdiction Anandpur Sahib and Kiratpur Sahib gurdwaras fall, said the two were sacked with immediate effect after the incident was brough to his notice. “The two aren't SGPC's permanent employees," he said.
A police officer said the woman had come to the gurdwara along with her husband on August 12. The next evening, as she noticed the two were filming her, she raised an alarm. The duo was identified as priest Inderjeet Singh and kitchen assistant Jaswinder Singh of nearby Bhatauli village.

The incident has shocked the devotees. Achhar Singh, a devotee who had come with his family, said, “SGPC has constantly been getting a bad name due to such acts in gurdwaras. I had planned to stay here for two days but now I wouldn't spend even a single night."
Anandpur Sahib DSP Sant Singh said a case was registered against the two on the woman's complaint. The duo was apprehended on the same day, but were later released on bail. “The phones recovered from them didn't have any vulgar content but they confessed to having filmed the woman. They had been doing this for long," the officer said.
