The Army began the assault on June 4 morning by firing heavy artillery and mortars against the temple complex, destroying the tops of two 18 century towers, the water tank behind a large public assembly room called Teja Singh Samundri Hall, and other buildings in the circumference. Hundreds of people were killed in the criss-cross of intense firing that continued throughout June 4.

According to Bhan Singh, then general secretary of SGPC no warning was given before the Army started shelling the temple. The Army detained volunteers of the Red Cross who wanted to help the injured at the Jallianwala Bagh.
