Anonymous wrote in this comment about the CBI inquiry and possible arrest of Baba Gurmeet Singh of Dera Sacha Sauda. I am posting that news item here. If this one is true then there is a major upheaval in the offing in Punjab. This Baba is apparently pretty powerful… and it is also a fact now – given the reports – that the Sikh leaders are being motivated by Babbar Khalsa folks from across the border. So, this issue is not to die so soon..
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) claims to have found evidence against Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, chief of the Dera Saccha Sauda sect, for the murder of a male follower and the rape of a former sadhvi (woman disciple).
Sources have told CNN-IBN that the CBI has completed its investigation and will file a charge sheet on July 31. The story begins on July 10, 2002 when Dera followers allegedly shot dead their former colleague Ranjit Singh, whom they suspected of leaking an anonymous letter written to the Prime Minister and the CBI in which he had alleged that the Baba raped his sister, a former sadhvi.
There seems to be direct evidence of the Baba being involved in rape and murder of people. He had been raping women in his Dera for several years now!
The CBI says it has forensic evidence that Dera Pradhan Kishan Lal’s licensed revolver was used to murder Ranjit. A statement by Gurmeet’s driver Khatta Singh alleges that the Baba plotted Ranjit’s murder. Ten other witnesses too have given statements before a magistrate that the Baba was behind the murder
Ranjit Singh’s father alleges that the Baba wanted his son to take back his allegations. “They came and demanded an apology from my son. He did not know for what,” claims Joginder Singh.
Ranjit’s sister Sanjeevan has alleged that the Baba raped her for three years and has sexually assaulted several other Sadhvis. CNN-IBN has learnt that three more Sadhvis—two from Harayana and one from Punjab—have given statements alleging that the Baba had raped them.
The CBI has procured medical records, which allegedly prove that a gynecologist, who is the wife of a powerful Dera functionary, performed abortions on Sadhvis in a hospital the sect runs.
