Faridkot, November 24

Two weeks after a four-member Particular investigation Group (SIT) of Punjab Police visited Rohtak’s Sunaria jail to query Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in reference to three sacrilege incidents, together with theft of a “bir” of Guru Granth Sahib at Burj Jawahar Singh Wala and Bargari, the SIT on Wednesday summoned the chairperson and senior vice chairperson of the dera for questioning.

The SIT has summoned chairperson Vipassana Insaan and senior vice chairperson Dr PR Nain at Ludhiana on November 26, stated Surinder Pal Singh Parmar, the IG and head of the SIT.

In the course of the questioning of the dera head on November 9, he denied his involvement within the sacrilege incidents, claiming that he had had no position within the functioning of the dera or decision-making.

The Dera chief claimed that his position was restricted to doing ‘satsang’ and preaching the meeting of dera followers. For additional investigation within the sacrilege incidents, the SIT has summoned the chairperson and senior vice chairperson, stated Parmar.

It’s alleged that conspiracies about sacrilege incidents had been hatched on the dera headquarters in Sirsa and had been allegedly executed by dera members. On the idea of this, the dera chief was named as a major accused within the sacrilege incidents in July 2020.

The Dera chief is present process life imprisonment at Sunaria jail after his conviction in a rape and two homicide instances.

Vipassana Insaan and Dr PR Nain are already going through the allegation of orchestrating violence in Panchkula in August 2017 after Ram Rahim was convicted by a particular CBI courtroom.
