VIDEO: 45 People Charged In Greenwood Gurudwara's Big Brawl In Indianapolis

IANS, 04 Sep, 2018
    A big brawl at a Sikh temple in the United States' Indianapolis that left four people with minor injuries has now resulted in charges against 27 additional individuals
     
     
    The Johnson County Prosecutor's Office say the new charges are in addition to the 18 people charged in early July, bringing the total now to 45 individuals facing charges stemming from the brawl.
     
     
    Since the initial 18 people were charged, prosecutor Brad Cooper said investigators have continued to pour through security and cell phone video footage.  The video enabled investigators to identify the 27 additional individuals who allegedly took part in the fight.
     
     
     
     
     
    Investigators say the video shows there were some true victims on the day of the brawl.
     
     
    “The little girl who was pepper sprayed, she was not charged with anything,” Cooper continued.  “Another guy that got stabbed, we can’t find that he was actively involved, so we didn’t charge him with anything.”
     
     
    Meantime, the battle over temple leadership that sparked the brawl is still playing out in civil court.  Several plaintiffs claim leaders broke temple bylaws with they were elected to power in early April.
