Post Ram Rahim conviction, Panchkula erupted due to this silly error by a cop
A crucial error made by the police in Haryana led to the violence that erupted following the conviction of Gurmeet Ram Rahim. The Haryana Home department has now placed DCP Ashok Kumar under suspension allegedly for this blunder he made.
Everyone was baffled as to how so many people turned up at Panchkula. It may have been a result of a clerical error made by the DCP. In the order ahead of the court verdict the DCP did not speak about the assembly of persons. It only said that people are barred from carrying weapons.
Such orders need to speak about prohibiting the assembly of persons. However this order was silent on the same and hence in the absence of instructions, none tried and stopped the crowd from building up.
This is one of the primary reasons why Haryana Chief MInister, Manohar Lal Khattar has not been able to explain to the centre why the entry of people was not prohibited.
The order of the Haryana home department said that Kumar has been placed under suspension with immediate effect. During the period of suspension, he will report to the office of the DGP, Haryana, Panchkula, the order also read.
