Dera followers to intensify stir over member’s murder

Bathinda, November 24

Members of the Dera Sacha Sauda Committee have indicated that if they don’t get justice in the murder case of their prominent member Manohar Lal, more followers would reach Salabatpura, the state headquarters of the Sirsa-based sect.

Around 3,000 dera members from nearby blocks have already reached Salabatpura. Dera committee members from Haryana and Rajasthan, who came to Salabatpura to participate in the protest, said many more followers wanted to join the protest. Dera committee member Harcharan Singh said, “We are flooded with phone calls from followers in Haryana and Rajasthan, who want to come and join the protest. As the days are passing by, they are calling for a new course of action for the protest.”

He said their talks with the district administration were on, but these had failed to reach any conclusion. “We want the issue to be resolved at the earliest,” he said. Pressure is mounting on the state government and the police to act quickly in the case as dera followers are adamant that they won’t cremate the body till the police nab the killers. — TNS
