AS the deadline for Sant Rampal to be present in the Punjab and Haryana HC approaches, Haryana CM Manohar Lal Khattar Saturday appealed to the self-styled godman to present himself before the court in a “peaceful manner”.

“In a democratic system, one must give utmost priority to uphold the dignity of the judicial system. I appeal to Baba Rampal to present himself before the court in a peaceful manner,” the CM said. He also appealed to Rampal’s followers to cooperate.

The HC had issued non-bailable warrants against Rampal, who is wanted in a contempt case, and had asked the police to produce him on or before November 17.

Meanwhile, the police have begun beefing up security around the Satlok Ashram in Hisar district’s Barwala town, where Rampal has taken refuge.
