Gurugram, Aug 24: Forty duty magistrates were appointed in Gurugram on Thursday to deal with any situation that may follow the CBI court’s verdict on the rape case against Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
The special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court in Panchkula in Haryana will announce its verdict on Friday.
Adequate numbers of police personnel have been deployed in different parts of Gurgaon, home to nearly 25 lakh people, MNCs, BPOs and automobile manufacturing hubs.
The authorities also formed a number of Peace Keeping Committees to monitor the situation in the rural areas of Gurugram.
He said the number of followers of the Dera chief were less in Gurugram compared to other parts of Haryana but precautionary measures have been taken.
