Written by Pallavi Parmar

Ram Rahim convicted in Rape case currently transferred to Rohtak Jail in a helicopter.  The situation is tensed inside the city Panchkula. As per the reports of several media organizations around five people have died and dozens of them got injured. The supporters are attacking media reporters, burning the vehicles outside the court. They are breaking the OB van of various news channels. Although forces are deployed outside the court who are trying to control the situation. In Panchkula forces using tear gas to evict the thousands of supporters.

This protest led to curfew in various cities across Punjab and Haryana. About a lakhs of Dera followers are protesting in Panchkula and Sirsa. After a long time of 15 years finally, the controversial case hearing has been done. There has been the extremely tense situation. Internet services suspended all over Punjab and Haryana. Almost the lynch mob situation. As per the reports, police officials ran away from the situation. Around 30 thousands of people move from Dera premises to Panchkula. If you talk about the situation across the Haryana and Punjab, the situation is highly tensed curfews imposed in many cities.

Earlier during the Jat agitation, the Haryana was burnt similarly like this violence of Panchkula. Government is not taking any step to evict this violence. And it is increasing simultaneously. Sangrur got fired by goons, cars and everything is just burning by the supporters. And they are not giving a chance to security forces to control the situation. They are attacking the security forces with shells.
