The situation in violence-hit parts of Punjab and Haryana was limping back to normality on Tuesday with para-military forces personnel conducting flag marches in sensitive areas following Saturday’s violence by supporters of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh protesting against registration of a fresh murder case against him.

The situation in Punjab and Haryana was peaceful and under control, top police officers of the two States said here.

Security personnel conducted flag marches in areas of Baghapurana, Moga and its adjoining places in Punjab, officials said here.

Top police brass in the two States reviewed the security arrangements with officers of para-military forces and asked them to deal sternly with miscreants to ensure peace at all cost.

Tyres of a bus were burnt by miscreants late last night near the residence of Punjab Finance Minister Manpreet Singh in Punjab, police said adding timely intervention of security forces personnel saved the situation.

The paramilitary forces and contingents of policemen in the two states continued to maintain a tight vigil at the troubled spots where the followers of the Dera chief had set afire trains and buses and damaged public property, he said.
