Hitting out at those behind the ban, the Chief Minister said anyone, be it Sikh or non-Sikh, could enter the "guru ghar" (abode of the Guru) to pay his respects or partake of the `langar prasad'.

The total value of the currency seized from her is $4,80,200. The woman worked for Delhibased hawala operator Amit Malhotra who had met her on a flight six months ago and befriended her. She had smuggled out foreign currency several times for Malhotra who would reportedly pay her Rs 1 lakh each time. The two, who were remanded for two days after their arrest on Monday, have now been remanded to judicial custody for two weeks.
