Chandigarh: The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) will press for murder charge if anyone desecrates the Sikh holy book, Guru Granth Sahib, SGPC chief Avtar Singh Makkar said Thursday.

"We will bring a resolution in the next general house of SGPC to demand that anyone violating the Guru Granth Sahib should be booked (for murder)," Makkar said.

"For us the holy book is a living guru. We have taken serious note of recent incidents of desecration," Makkar said. "We want such miscreants should get maximum punishment."
