Police in India's Haryana state are continuing an operation to arrest a Hindu guru, after nearly 200 people were injured in clashes at his ashram on Tuesday.

The self-styled guru, known as Rampal, is wanted in connection with a 2006 murder case and for contempt of court.

Thousands of his supporters are protecting the Barwala town compound.

Jawahar Yadav, a government official in Haryana, said that the priority was to 'save innocent lives" while also carrying out the High Court's orders.
