Decoding the Devotee-Police Standoff
To grasp the full scope of the ongoing standoff between the Radha Swami Satsang Sabha devotees and the local police administration, it is crucial to delve into the events leading up to this tense situation.
The tensions have been simmering since Saturday when authorities took decisive action to remove encroachments that the devotees had illegally erected.

After the authorities vacated the scene, the devotees wasted no time in re-blocking the road. As villagers and a student attempted to pass through the barricaded road, they became the target of the devotees’ anger. Sharp iron wires were deployed in Khaspur, replacing the gates that had been removed.
As the evening descended, a substantial number of devotees converged at the disturbance sites, armed with sticks and helmets. Shockingly, there was no police or administrative representation present to maintain law and order, further exacerbating the chaos.
