JPNN| Jammu | Jun 11, 2015| Sikh organisations Thursday demanded a judicial probe into the June 4 violent protest which claimed the life of a youth. Expressing surprise over the non-initiation of the judicial inquiry into the killing of Jasjeet Singh, the groups also termed the registration of FIRs against Sikh youths a "breach of agreement". "We demand a judicial inquiry into this matter which has claimed the life of a youth," T S Wazir, Chairman J-K State Gurudwara Prabandhak Board said. "Registration of FIRs against Sikh youths is clearly a breach of agreement reached between various Sikh organisations and the district administration to end protest in Jammu," he added.

Accusing the police and the civil administration of unnecessarily harassing the minority Sikh community which was committed towards maintaining peace and communal harmony in the region, Wazir termed the registration of FIRs as a provocative step which would increase misunderstanding and help disgruntled elements create confusion and unrest. "There was no probe in the anti-sikh riots of 1984 and 1989 in Jammu in which several members of the minority community were killed," he said. He also appealed to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mufti Mohammad Sayeed to intervene in the matter and take steps to prevent the harassment of the Sikh minority in the state. A youth was killed and seven people, including three policemen, were injured as clashes erupted on June 4 between police and a group of Sikh youths who were protesting against removal of posters of slain Khalistani militant leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in Jammu city.

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
