HC slams Haryana for crowd buildup in Panchkula


Chandigarh, 24 August(Wishav Warta): The Punjab and Haryana high court on Thursday slammed the Haryana government for allowing a massive buildup of Dera Sacha Sacha followers in Panchkula and directed the Central government to provide adequate security ahead of the verdict in a rape case against Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

The high court division bench of acting chief justice SS Saron and justice Avneesh Jhingan also warned Haryana director general of police (DGP) of action if the police failed to provide proper security. It observed that the court did not want a repeat of the lawlessness witnessed during the February 2016 Jat quota agitation in which nearly 30 persons had lost their lives and property worth crores was damaged in Haryana.
