Situation in Haryana, Punjab limping back to normalcy

chandigarh Updated: Mar 02, 2010 15:09 IST

The situation in violence-hit parts of Punjab and Haryana was limping back to normalcy on Tuesday with para-military forces personnel conducting flag marches in sensitive areas following Saturday's violence by supporters of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh protesting against registration of a fresh murder case against him.

The situation in Punjab and Haryana was peaceful and under control, top police officers of the twin states said in Chandigarh.

Security personnel conducted flag marches in areas of Baghapurana, Moga and its adjoining places in Punjab, officials said here.

Top police brass in the two states reviewed the security arrangements with officers of para-military forces and
asked them to deal sternly with miscreants to ensure peace at
all cost.

Tyres of a bus were burnt by miscreants late last night near the residence of Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh
in Punjab, police said adding timely intervention of security forces personnel saved the situation.

The paramilitary forces and contingents of policemen in the two states continued to maintain a tight vigil at the
troubled spots where the followers of the Dera chief had set afire trains and buses and damaged public property, he said.
