Faridkot: Six followers of Dera Sacha Sauda were arrested for allegedly damaging a petrol pump and a car at Chal village near here, the police said on Saturday.

The Dera followers damaged the petrol pump and a car on August 25 after the sect head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted by a CBI court in Panchkula in a 2002 rape case.

The police claimed that the arrested Dera followers tried to set the petrol pump on fire, but failed to do so.

The Dera followers were arrested yesterday, the police said.
