2 stabbed outside gurdwara in California

Two men were stabbed outside a gurdwara in California and more than a dozen people pepper-sprayed in violent clashes that broke out between two groups over a power struggle to control the shrine.

According to eyewitness, violence erupted outside the Tierra Buena Gurdwara in Yuba City of California at about 6:45 pm (local time) on Saturday when the meeting of its board of directors ended and some of the directors were leaving the parking lot. Clashes erupted outside the Gurdwara apparently due to a power struggle between two groups on control over the religious place. Two men were stabbed in the incident while more than a dozen others were pepper-sprayed, witnesses said.

No arrest has been made so far, as the incident is currently being investigated, the Sutter County Sheriff’s Department said. The board members leaving the parking lot were apparently confronted by a group of men and attacked with shovels, broom handles and sticks, as two groups of over 30 people clashed with each other.
Later both sides claimed that they were attacked by the other group.
