Chandigarh: Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Sunday made it clear that those involved in violence and reported inappropriate behaviour with women during the Jat stir will not be spared even as he again asked people to share information about incidents.

In a statement issued here, the chief minister said some "rowdy elements" committed the crimes of "looting and arson" by taking the law in their hands and disrupted peace in the state.

"Each and every person involved in such incidents shall be identified and strict action be taken against them", he said.

Those who played direct or indirect role in such incidents are being identified with the help of witnesses and audio and video clips. The people should come forward and give them to the government if they have any information in this regard, he said.

The state government would compensate those whose property, including residential or commercial, was damaged during these incidents, he said.

"The state government is taking serious action on the news reports which appeared in the media about alleged inappropriate behaviour with some women during the protest at Murthal in Sonepat district.

"A special investigation team comprising three senior women police officers has been constituted. One could give any related information or evidence to the team over the telephone or through letter or online. If any such untoward incident happened, the guilty would be punished", Khattar said.

"I have full faith that the people of Haryana would soon move on leaving behind these unfortunate incidents, strengthen the feeling of brotherhood and join the efforts being made by the state government for the development of the state", he said.

The chief minister appealed to the people to come forward and help in reestablishing peace and brotherhood in the state and realise the vision of 'Haryana Ek - Haryanvi Ek'.

Meanwhile, with a view to enabling those affected by the recent agitation to communicate directly with the chief minister, the state government today released email ids - reliefcmharyana@gmail. Com and feedbackriotscmharyana@gmail.Com and a WhatsApp number 9501053696.

An official spokesman said the people can either upload any audio or video clip, photograph or any document which they might consider worth bringing to the notice of the chief minister.

He said the people could share information on these email ids or WhatsApp without any fear as their anonymity would be maintained.

Khattar had yesterday appealed to people to share information, if they have any, with the state police regarding the alleged incidents with women near Murthal in Sonepat during the Jat quota agitation.
