The death toll in the violence that erupted in Haryana after the rape conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has climbed to 31, the Home Ministry said.

"Forces have been deployed, as per the requests from the State Governments", Singh said.

The CM said his government would not accept any nonsense or allow anyone to spread bad blood in Punjab even on Monday and this was his promise to the state and its people.

But the CM said he will bill the damages and submit the list in the Punjab and Haryana high court, which has told the dera to pay for the vandalism. Security stepped up after violent protests by Dera followers in the state.

"I appeal to all to maintain peace".

Captain Amarinder disclosed that curfew had been lifted in three districts (Muktsar, Fairdkot and Sangrur) of the state and relaxed in the other areas where it was imposed yesterday.

- Section 144 imposed in Uttarakhand's Nainital and Noida, Ghaziabad and Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh. Schools in Noida and Ghaziabad will also remain close today. Asserting that he would not allow any dera to create trouble in Punjab, Amarinder opined that the way things were going, it did not seem likely that political parties would support the Deras in the future.

- Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged officials to work round the clock to restore normalcy and provide all possible assistance that is required. Responding to another question, Captain Amarinder said there had been no contact between him and the chief minister of Haryana though the Punjab DGP had been in regular touch with his counterpart there.

- Madhur Verma of Delhi Police confirmed that Dera Sacha Sauda followers tried to create mischief, following which a case has been registered.

On the other hand, Ram Rahim, who was arrested a day ago, has been kept in Rohtak jail. What can 200 cops do before lakhs of people? Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar directed doctors for best possible treatment.

Internet services were being suspended for 72 hours beginning Thursday evening following a collective decision to this effect by the authorities in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh.
