The trustees lashed out at the monument clerk’s negligence for damage to the nearly 150-year-old wooden gate at martyr Sukhdev’s ancestral home
Even when members of Shaheed Sukhdev Thapar Memorial Trust raised a tent and cried over the destroyed condition of the martyr’s ancestral home in Naughara Mohalla (near Chaura Bazar), a stray dog shot one of the wooden gates near the house on Monday night.
The trust members blamed the monument clerk’s negligence for damage to the approximately 150-year-old wooden gate, which he apparently did not check before leaving his service. However, the registrar indicated that the dog may have entered through a hole in the boundary wall behind the house.
The Trust has filed a complaint with the Department of Archeology, which has recently begun repairing the house.
