The Punjab and Haryana high court on Wednesday issued non-bailable warrants against a Haryana-based sect leader Rampal and another person after they failed to appear in court in an ongoing case.
A division bench of the court headed by Justice Jeyapaul directed the state home secretary and the state director general of police (DGP) to ensure that sect leader Rampal of Satlok Ashram near Rohtak and Rashtriya Samaj Seva Committee president Ram Kumar Dhaka are present in court Nov 10.
The controversial sect leader's followers had indulged in vandalism in a court in Hisar town, 240 km from here in July this year when he was going there to appear in a 2006 murder conspiracy case.
The high court had taken suo moto notice of the incident and summoned him.
Rampal submitted a medical certificate Wednesday seeking exemption from the court hearing.
