Anyone involved in US Gurdwara Killings will be punished : US Envoy

Nancy PowellNew Delhi, Aug 10 (Agency)

US Ambassador Nancy Powell has said that if the gunman who killed six people at a gurdwara at Winconsin had an accomplice, he or she will be punished.


"Though news suggests this was the act of one individual, if anyone else is involved, they will be brought to justice and charged under appropriate laws," Powell said in a letter to BJP leader Vijay Jolly here.


The envoy pointed out Thursday that she had visited the Bangla Sahib Gurdwara here Monday to convey to the Sikh community her "profound sadness and disappointment about this terrible event".


"The president, secretary of state and I have all conveyed to the Sikh community and Indian government that the US abhors acts of religious violence," she said.


Powell's letter follows one from Jolly in which he pointed out that the murder of six Sikhs by a white gunman at the gurdwara Aug 5 "is unpardonable and terrorism against humanity".


Jolly asked the US administration to provide medical facilities to the injured and compensation to the families of the dead.
