Jathadar of Sri Akaal Takath has called upon the SGPC to take action to help this Sikh to reverse the verdict.
This case is unique under the circumstances via which it came to light. Ripudaman Singh was not in fact arrested by the police but declared his kirpan to the security at the US embassy in Copenhagen a year ago, along with the assurance that he would get his kirpan back. But to his surprise the security called the police and he was then charged for carrying a 'dagger' with the length exceeding 7cms as permitted by Danish law.
A fine of 3000 kroners (more than 500 dollars) was imposed on Ripudaman Singh, who has been a PhD student of Human Genetics at the University of Aarhus for the past years.
