Police have named the woman who died on Thursday following a disturbance at the Sikh Temple, Spring Wood.
Detectives today (Fri) confirmed her identity as 41-year-old Harjinder Kaur Sidhu from Huddersfield.
A West Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said: “Enquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances of the incident.”
A 48-year-old man arrested on suspicion of manslaughter following Harjinder’s death during a disturbance at the Sikh Temple in Springwood was released on bail today (Fri).
Harjinder collapsed inside the Temple on Thursday following an incident with a 70-year-old woman outside moments earlier.
Police said Harjinder became unwell after being detained by a man inside the Temple. Despite being treated by paramedics she died a short time afterwards.
The death is being investigated by Det Supt Simon Atkinson of the Homicide and Major Enquiry Team.
A post mortem took place today (Fri) and an inquest will be opened and adjourned in due course.
Police taped off the temple area in Prospect Street for several hours following the incident which occurred at lunchtime.
Manjit Singh, 59, of Birkby who helped build the Temple, said: “What has happened is very upsetting for everyone at the Temple, it is very sad news. It is really shocking.”
Another member of the Temple from Linthwaite who didn’t want to be named added: “The community is very sad about this terrible tragedy. Everyone is very upset at the moment.”
And Clr Mohan Sokhal, (Greenhead, Lab), who has been a regular worshipper at the Temple for many years, said: “It is a big shock to me what has happened.
“I heard about it after someone phoned me to tell me what had occurred. I went straight down. It is all very sad.”
No-one from the Temple’s management committee wished to comment today (Fri) but the Examiner was told a statement would be released on Saturday.
