Sirsa: Authorities on Tuesday relaxed the curfew from 7 am to 7 pm in Sirsa after the sentencing of Dera Sach Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in two rape cases.

The decision was taken after no violent incident was reported in the area. This is the second time since Sunday the curfew has been relaxed, officials said.

 

Sirsa town is home to the sprawling Dera headquarters where the sect’s followers had gathered in large numbers ahead of Ram Rahim’s conviction.

“Authorities should lift the curfew permanently in the area as the law and order situation is under control,” Bobby Soni, a localite, said.

“During the relaxation of curfew people can buy their household items. Also, schools colleges and other educations institutions will also remain open during the period,” Special Commissioner (Civil), V Umashankar said.

Inspector General (Hisar range) AS Dhillon on Monday said there has been no report of violence by Dera followers in the district.

 

A special CBI court on Monday sentenced Ram Rahim to 20 years in prison after his conviction in two rape cases.
