Dera Sacha Sauda verdict: Life comes to halt in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh
Security forces in Punjab, Chandigarh and Haryana have been on a high alert to deal with any law and order situation, due to the Panchkula court's impending verdict on Friday in a sexual exploitation case registered against Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh by the Central Bureau of Investigation.

Meanwhile, flag marches have been staged by security forces in Panchkula, Sirsa, Hissar and some other places where Dera Chief's followers live. Also, various hospitals have been put on alert as a precautionary measure if the law and order situation takes an ugly turn. Educational institutions have closed for two days and large gatherings have been banned. Train and bus services have been suspended.

Not only that the internet services have been suspended for 72 hours in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh to tame the rumour mongers on social media. The police have been instructed to keep a close watch on social media and have warned people not to spread rumours.

A large number of followers of the Dera chief have arrived in Panchkula and Chandigarh threatening the law and order situation.

A large number of paramilitary personnel have been deployed in Punjab and Haryana for maintaining law and order, he said. One paramilitary company comprises over 100 personnel.

The Dera's website states: "A true disciple always asks for HIS grace and glimpses only. He never seeks for materialistic things and keeps striving to make himself able for divine love. He wishes Guru's divine vision in every particle even after death. Those who love the Guru unconditionally, they do never die but become immortal in both the realms."

A large number of Sikh leaders despise the Dera  chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, mainly due to wearing an attire allegedly similar to that of Guru Gobind Singh, which led to issuance of the 'hukamnama' against him by the Akal Takht.
