The home ministry told the Haryana government that Judge Jagdeep Singh should be provided highest level of security in view of the threat perception after he delivered the verdict against the Dera head, an official said.

The home ministry will analyse intelligence inputs before deciding whether the judge's security needs to be handled by a central force, such as the CRPF or CISF, the official said.

Over 30 persons have died and scores more injured in the violence that erupted on Friday shortly after the verdict. Dera followers resorted to violence and burnt down public property in dozens which prompted the Punjab and Haryana High Court to order attaching of Dera properties to compensate the loss.
