An unidentified man has been allegedly beaten to death by a mob after he made sacrilege attempt at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab. 

 A video of the incident has surfaced on social media showing the man jumping over the railing inside the Golden Temple during the evening prayer.

The SGPC president has confirmed that the man has been killed.

The man jumped over the metal grills before the parkash of Guru Granth Sahib. People saw the alleged sacrilege incident on live TV, being telecast by a private channel. The video clip soon went viral on social media.

Talking to the media, Parminder Singh Bhandal, Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order), said the identity of the deceased is being ascertained.

Maintaining that there was no security lapse, Bhandal said when thousands of pilgrims visit the shrine, one cannot predict such a random act by one individual.
