More than 200 people were injured in violent clashes at self-styled godman Rampal Maharaj’s ashram in Haryana on Tuesday as police lobbed teargas and used batons to disperse hundreds of stone-throwing supporters who vowed to prevent his arrest, police said.



Here's a photo essay capturing the violence that broke out at the Satlok ashram as well as the turmoil that turned Hisar into a war zone.
