As Rohtak gears itself for the pronouncement of quantum of sentence to self-styled godman and rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the deputy commissioner of Rohtak has issued stern warnings that people creating trouble should be ready to face bullets.

The Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Ram Rahim is stationed at a jail in Rohtak's Sunaria surrounded by heavy security with the Army on standby as well, following the violence and arson that followed his conviction on Friday.

Rohtak Deputy Commissioner Atul Kumar said that the troublemakers will first be given a warning to withdraw if they do not heed they would be fired upon.

"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," Rohtak Deputy Commissioner Atul Kumar said.

Additional Director General of Police (Law and Order) Mohd Akil also warned troublemakers, saying "Anyone who creates trouble will be taught a lesson, like in Panchkula and Sirsa."

"People do not have any reason to be afraid as stringent security measures have been taken," Kumar said, adding the situation in the district was "completely under control" and the police were fully prepared to tackle any situation.

Rohtak deputy commissioner has meanwhile asked people not to visit the district unless it is urgent. People entering the district would be asked to show identity proof as well as furnish a reason for visiting and if the reason is not substantial the concerned person runs a risk of being arrested.

A violent rampage by Dera followers in several parts of Haryana, Punjab and New Delhi after the conviction of Ram Rahim in the rape case resulted in the death of more than 38 people.
