<b>Pics: Punjab on the boil</b>
Punjab has witnessed violence in several towns and cities over the last three days.

New Delhi: Punjab has witnessed violence in several towns and cities over the last three days over the Dera Sacha Sauda issue, leaving over 50 people as well as policemen injured.

Followers of the dera laid siege to Bathinda town Monday and Tuesday and clashed with the police. They damaged public property extensively before retreating.

As a face saving measure aimed at pacifying the Sikh community, the Bathinda police Wednesday night registered cases of violence against over 3,000 dera followers.

Sikhs have taken to the streets in various towns and cities across Punjab and other parts of the country, burning effigies of the sect godman.

Sikh activists resorted to violence in Amritsar and Patiala on Wednesday and forced shopkeepers to down shutters.
