A Karnal court has again deferred to May 28 the judgment in the four-year-old case in which an attempt was made to on the life of Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

Earlier, the judgment was expected on April 28 but was deferred to May 12.

Alleged Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) activist Bakhshish Singh is among eight persons, including a woman, who are accused in the case.

Meanwhile, aprehending law and order trouble after the judgment, the district authorities had deployed a posse of police around the district court complex on Saturday.

Policemen had also surrounded the mini secretariat and maintained a strict vigil on those moving around the campus.
The controversial head of the Sirsa-based dera had escaped unhurt after his convoy was targeted with a powerful blast on the GT Road near Nilokheri on February 2, 2008.
The incident had led violence in various parts of Haryana.
