Police: Brawl at Sikh temple in Indiana leaves 4 injured


Police say a brawl at a Sikh temple in suburban Indianapolis has left four people with minor injuries.

Greenwood Assistant Police Chief Matthew Fillenwarth says police and medics responded Sunday to a verbal and physical fight involving about 150 people at the Gurdwara Sikh temple in the city just south of Indianapolis.

He tells WISH-TV the altercation began as there was a change of leadership within the temple that he says happens every two years. Fillenwarth says it's believed that there was a worship service going on when the fight broke out.

Fillenwarth says four people suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, where they will be questioned by police.

Police are reviewing surveillance video from the temple and interviewing other participants in the fight.

    It would seem the leadership of that temple is somewhat of a financially rewarding position.
