CBI special court judge Jagdeep Singh will be flown into Haryana's Rohtak jail where self-proclaimed spiritual guru and rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is being held to proclaim quantum of justice. Following the violence, after the Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim was convicted, Rohtak has been turned into a fortress to prevent any further violence.

A multi-layer security cordon has been set up around the district jail where the CBI special court judge will announce the sentence to Ram Rahim who was found guilty of rape and criminal intimidation of 2 female disciples in 2002. At least 28 companies of paramilitary troops have been stationed in Rohtak and Dera followers are not being allowed to enter the district. Nearly 30,000 followers were removed from the Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters in Sirsa on Sunday evening.

"We will not allow anyone to create any sort of trouble in Rohtak. Anyone breaking law or indulging in acts of violence or arson will himself be responsible for his fate. Anyone creating trouble will be given a warning first and if he still pays no heed, then he will have to face the bullet," a top officer in Rohtak, Atul Kumar, said.

According to police, a Special Investigation Team will be asked to investigate into the violence on Friday following the conviction of Ram Rahim. More than a lakh of Ram Rahim's followers had congregated in Panchkula ahead of the court's verdict and following his conviction began violent protests which led to the death of more than 30 people in Panchkula itself.
