As many as 5375 personnel, from the state and central forces, were deployed by the state government to arrest Rampal and his aides from Barwala based ashram after ten-day-long operation which had ended with his arrest on November 19, 2014.

The entire operation carried to catch Rampal had cost Rs 26 crore to the exchequer. In March 2015, police had submitted challan against him and in July this year, a local court in Hisar had framed charges against him under various serious charges.
