After an objectionable video in which Chief Khalsa Diwan president Charanjit Singh Chadha is purportedly seen with a woman principal of a school run by the charitable society surfaced on social media, several of its office-bearers and members replaced him with officiating head Dhanraj Singh. The woman principal purportedly seen in the video has  lodged a police complaint against Chadha accusing him of sexual harassment. In an email to Punjab director general of police (DGP) Suresh Arora, a copy of which was marked to the Amritsar police also, the complainant, who claimed to be mother of two, said she has been working with the organisation for the last 22 years. She sought strict action against the Chadha.  Earlier, the office-bearers and members of Chief Khalsa Diwan, which runs nearly 50 schools, two management colleges, a nursing college and a hospital among others, gathered at the society’s head office demanding resignation of Chadha from the post. Chadha, however, refused to budge claiming innocence calling the video fake. A protest was held  outside the president’s office Finally, they replaced him. Dhanraj Singh said they will form a panel to investigate allegations against Chadha and conduct presidential elections soon. Besides, members of Chief Khalsa Diwan, former Congress leader Mandeep Singh Manna, All India Sikh Students Federation president Manjit Singh Bhoma and others lodged written complaints with the Akal Takht seeking action against Chadha.
