The order of crackdown on headquarters of Dera by the High Court came a day after a huge cache of guns and ammunition were recovered from the premises.
The Punjab and Haryana High Court had on Tuesday allowed the Haryana government to conduct a search and evacuation operation in Dera Sacha Sauda’s Sirsa headquarters which is located in Sirsa, Haryana. Following the orders, the Haryana police and paramilitary forces are all ready to enter the Dera headquarters tomorrow to exercise the “sanitisation” process of Dera headquarters. The order of crackdown on headquarters of Dera by the High Court came a day after a huge cache of guns and ammunition were recovered from the premises. Here are top 5 points to watch for tomorrow’s exercise:
1) The officials were quoted by PTI as saying that when the sanitisation will take place, an aerial surveillance is also likely to be maintained. Bullet-proof vehicles are likely to be used in the process as well, they said. “We will press all necessary equipment at our disposal to conduct the sanitisation process smoothly,” the DGP said.
2) The whole process will be video graphed and overseen by the Pawar who has already arrived in Sirsa on Thursday and met top officials to take stock of things before the process is undertaken.
3) As per the report by PTI, while the sanitisation process will be overseen by the court commissioner, Haryana police personnel, paramilitary forces, duty magistrates, executive magistrates and revenue officials will also be part of the exercise.
4) Haryana DGP B S Sandhu was quoted by PTI as saying that the sanitisation process will be out of bounds for the media. He said, “We have formed a strategy and are hopeful that the sanitisation process will be conducted in a smooth manner. The Dera management too has expressed willingness to cooperate with the local administration and police during the investigation.”
5) The entire sanitisation process will be under the supervision of retired District and Sessions Judge, A K S Pawar who was appointed as court commissioner by the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Tuesday.
