On August 13, Rattan Singh, a member of the Panchayat committee had said “The religious organisations told the Panchayat that their Yatra was not completed and they want to resume it on August 28. The Panchayat has agreed to their demand and supported them.”
The Panchayat member said, “Permission is usually taken before the commencement of such a Yatra. Once permission is taken, it becomes the responsibility of the police to guarantee our security.”
