Chandigarh: The situation in violence-hit
parts of Punjab and Haryana was limping back to normalcy
Tuesday with para-military forces personnel conducting flag
marches in sensitive areas following Saturday`s violence by
supporters of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh
protesting against registration of a fresh murder case against
him.

The situation in Punjab and Haryana was peaceful and
under control, top police officers of the twin states said
here.

Security personnel conducted flag marches in areas of
Baghapurana, Moga and its adjoining places in Punjab,
officials said here.

Top police brass in the two states reviewed the security
arrangements with officers of para-military forces and
asked them to deal sternly with miscreants to ensure peace at
all cost.

Tyres of a bus were burnt by miscreants late last night
near the residence of Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh
in Punjab, police said adding timely intervention of security
forces personnel saved the situation.

The paramilitary forces and contingents of policemen in
the two states continued to maintain a tight vigil at the
troubled spots where the followers of the Dera chief had set
afire trains and buses and damaged public property, he said.
