    Police hunt after armed raid on Sikh temple

    Apr 26 2010

    POLICE were today hunting an armed gang who burst into a Sikh temple and left worshippers terrified.

    Three men, carrying what police believe to be a firearm, struck at the temple on St Andrews Drive in Pollokshields, Glasgow (U.K.).

    A four-figure sum was taken during the raid, which took place yesterday morning as the temple was being prepared for the day's services.

    Although the weapon was not fired during the incident, worshippers preparing for a service were left shaken.

    Strathclyde Police are investigating, with Detective Sergeant Jim Leckie appealing for information.

    He said: "Worshippers were preparing the temple for the day's services at the time of the incident and were left shaken by events."

    Police described two of the men involved as being black, about 6ft tall, and in their mid-20s.

    One was wearing dark clothing while one had on a black and white bandana.

    The third suspect is an Asian male, said to be in his early 20s, about 5ft 3ins to 5ft 5ins and wearing a grey-hooded top with a skull and crossbones design on the back.

    After taking the cash, the men made off towards Shields Road and Maxwell Drive

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
