Airports, bus stands and railway stations across the country have been alerted, officials said.
The conviction of the Dera head in a 2002 rape case had triggered arson and violence in Haryana that claimed 38 lives and injured over 250 people on August 25. While 32 people had died in the violence in Panchkula, six people died at Sirsa, where the sect headquarters is located.
A special CBI court in Panchkula had sentenced the Dera chief to 20-year imprisonment in the rape case on Monday.
Fifty-year-old Ram Rahim Singh is lodged in the Sunaria jail in Rohtak district, where a thick blanket of security has been thrown around.
Five Haryana policemen, who were part of the Dera Sacha Sauda chief’s security and were charged with sedition, were dismissed from service, state police chief B S Sandhu said.
