Followers of Dera Sacha Sauda on Friday blocked the main Ferozepur road for about nine hours,protesting against the distortion of the photo of their Guru,Satguru Ram Rahim.

The Dugri Police had registered an FIR on June 22 against a man,Sukhjinder Singh,who had distorted the photo of the Guru through his Facebook ID,Lambardar gallery,but no arrest had been made until now.

Two days ago as well,followers had staged a dharna outside the police station and officials had sought two days’ time. However they have not been able to arrest the culprit yet.

On Friday,the angry protesters stated that they will not lift the dharna till the police arrests the person who had hurt their sentiments.

Heavy police force has been deployed around the Verka milk plant area where the protesters were sitting,but they refused to lift the dharna.

People were inconvenienced due to this because buses going to Ferozepur,Muktsar and many other areas had to cross from this state highway.

The buses chose other longer routes while general commuters were left stranded towards one part of the city.

The dharna was lifted by 5 pm when police stated that the arrest of the culprit will be done within a day.

SHO Satwinder Singh stated that raids were being conducted and the culprit will be traced soon.
