"This is the first time this has happened in a temple by a Sikh group," said Gursharan Singh Nat, treasurer of the Sikh Gurdwara of Los Angeles, on Lankershim Boulevard. "The whole community is shocked."

Vowing to take their case all the way to the City Council, members of a Sikh group Tuesday filed an appeal with the city to keep alive their plans to build a religious and community center in North Hills.
