Hundreds of troops are patrolling the northern Indian city of Panchkula after the rape conviction of a religious leader sparked deadly clashes.

At least 30 people were killed on Friday during protests after the ruling against Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

They were believed to be followers of the self-styled guru, many of them killed by gunfire.

Singh was found guilty of raping two women at the headquarters of his sect, the Dera Sacha Sauda, in 2002.

Security forces were deployed to prevent further bloodshed after angry supporters rampaged through Panchkula, near Chandigarh.

The state government in Haryana has ordered a search of all centres there that belong to Singh's followers.

Officials said security personnel would seize any weapons they found.
