Reacting to Haryana's charge that Punjab did not stop vehicles carrying Dera followers from reaching Panchkula, the Chief Minister said the Haryana government, at no point in time, approached the Punjab government on this issue. The list would be submitted to the HC and the state would follow the orders.

The alleged rape and sexual exploitation, first reported through an anonymous letter in 2002 to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and the Chief Justice of the Punjab and Haryana High Court here, has taken almost 15 years to reach the verdict stage. "As many as seven Punjabis lost their lives and 42 were injured out of a total of 250 in the mayhem at Panchkula". There were minor incidents.

Speaking to reporters on the latest law and order situation in the state in the wake of Friday's violence in Panchkula after Ram Rahim was declared guilty by a CBI court, the CM said there had been no trouble anywhere since last night. He said he was speaking on the basis of information provided by Haryana, which was "hestitating in sharing information".

Sources said all measures are being taken to ensure that there is no repeat of Friday's violence in Haryana, Punjab, Rajasthan and Delhi.

Though the Punjab government too is being blamed for "mismanaging" the situation before and after the verdict against the dera head, chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Saturday patted his government's back for faring better than the neighbouring Haryana.

Captain Amarinder disclosed that curfew had been lifted in three districts (Muktsar, Fairdkot and Sangrur) of the state and relaxed in the other areas where it was imposed yesterday.

The DCs have been authorised to take decisions on enforcement of curfew in their respective districts, keeping in mind the situation on the ground, he said.

In the footage, Ram Rahim was seen not to wear the prison clothes.

"I will not allow violence of any form from any sect in Punjab", said Punjab CM.

Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) president Sukhbir Singh Badal said the State government should remain vigilant and ensure such incidents are not repeated.

"I appeal to all to maintain peace".
