The CBI Special court Judge, Jagdeep Singh, will pronounce quantum of sentence in the rape case against the Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh case after 2.30 pm at Sunaira Jail in Rohtak today. As security measures, the government has shifted special CBI court Panchkula to Sunaira Jail Rohtak where Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is lodged. In order to avoid Panchkula like security failure, the multi-layer security cordon manned by police and 23 companies of paramilitary forces has been deployed in and around Rohtak and also around the Sunaria Jail . The shoot-at-sight orders against ‘anti-social elements’ has been issued in Rohtak and the Army has been kept on standby. “The police will not hesitate in opening fire at those spreading violence. It’s a challenging situation, but we are prepared” said the Rohtak Deputy Commissioner, Atul Kumar, while talking to the press.
It may recalled that the dera followers had led to arson, vandalism, damaged government and public property on May 25 after the dera chief was convicted in the rape case while 32 dera followers were also killed when the police opened the fire to control them.
