Police, paramilitaries conduct flag march in Ludhiana

Ludhiana/ Barnala/ Chandigarh: Police and paramilitary personnel staged a flag march in Ludhiana after a person died and over 50 were injured in Dera Sacha Sauda-related clashes.

A man was shot dead by an unidentified gunman outside the sect's compound in Sunam city on Thursday.

His body was cremated after being taken in a procession.

Thousands of security personnel have been deployed across Punjab.

Apart from state police, over 10,000 armed central police have been sent to Punjab and the neighbouring state of Haryana. The army has also been put on alert.

The clashes began on Monday after the leader of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect, which combines social work with spirituality, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, dressed up as Guru Gobind Singh, the 10th guru of the Sikh community.

Sikh leaders have reacted angrily to this development, calling it an act of sacrilege by the sect and its chief Gurmeet Ram Raheem Singh has denied any wrongdoing.

The Dera sect says it is a social organisation that believes in the oneness of god and does not adhere to a particular faith, though its leader wears a turban and has a long beard in the Sikh style.
