Gurmeet Ram Rahim case gets a dramatic twist

PANCHKULA (HARYANA): In a shocking twist to the Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim's case, an anonymous letter was addressed to the Punjab and Haryana High Court serving Judge Justice Surya Kant. Addressing the case of alleged removal of cash and other assets from the Dera headquarters in Panchkula, the letter read that Haryana CID Chief Anil Rao and DSP Ajit Singh took bribes in exchange for help Dera move cash, assets, and illegal weapons from the headquarter to a safe location following conviction of Gurmeet.

The letter, which was also addressed to advocate Ravinder Singh Dhull, accused the two top cops of destroying nearly 65 computer hard disks that were retrieved from the Dera. The drives were sent to forensics, but were reported to have been severely damaged. It further described how both the officials did not arrest two key accused in the Panchkula violence case. “The police did not take any action against Vipassana Insan (Dera Sacha Sauda Management Committee chairperson) and Golo Mausi (Gurmeet's relative). The police team which went to arrest Golo Mausi returned empty handed as they suddenly got a call from their seniors not to take any action,” the letter said.

Author of the letter has only identified himself as a neighbour of Golo, and has now demanded a CBI probe against aforementioned Haryana police officers. Advocate Ravindra Dhul has meanwhile handed over the anonymous letter to the Punjab and Haryana High Court hearing the Dera Sacha Sauda case. The bench is yet to pass any orders on the basis of the anonymous letter. A copy has been given to an amicus curie, Anupam Gupta.
