Police raid Dera headquarters, huge amount of explosives recovered

Dera violence 2 arrested including in charge of Panchkula Dera centre

An unregistered luxury auto and some banned currency notes were also seized during the sanitisation exercise which also involved forensic examination of his so-called cave where he allegedly used to sexually exploit women.

Meanwhile, the Haryana police have arrested three close aides of Ram Rahim, Dera's Panchkula district in-charge Chamkaur Singh, Daan Singh and Punjab Police commando Karamjeet Singh for trying to help the godman escape from Panchkula during an agitation on August 25 in which 32 people lost their lives.

The police have sealed the Dera premises. Internet services in Sirsa district were suspended by local authorities. "This pathway has now been blocked", an administrative officer said. An illegal crackers factory was earlier found inside the headquarters.

Rape convict and Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's gufa (cave), renamed "teravaas" (your house), was extensively searched on Saturday.

Singh was recently convicted for raping several women, mostly his followers staying inside the Dera. There are rumours afloat that she was arrested by the Mumbai police.

The other fibreglass tunnel detected by security forces opened some five kilometres away from Ram Rahim's private residence, he added. Ram Rahim's headquarters in Sirsa is spread over two campuses, with one 600 acres, and the other over 100 acres. He also said there were no records of the dead bodies sent out of the hospital.

The dera complex has been divided into 10 zones for the objective of sanitisation and searches, with each zone under the control of a senior officer.

As many as 16 nakas have been set up near the Dera and a total of 41 companies of paramilitary forces have been deployed in the Sirsa district.

Honeypreet's photographs have been pasted at these police stations, the official said.

Journalists were stopped about 7 kms from the dera. Dera sources said the money was provided to manage the crowd, their food and transportation.

"Today, the sanitisation process has begun".

Asked whether he would reach out to the followers of the Dera Sacha Sauda in future to seek votes, he said, "We seek votes from all". This complex has been conceptualised and designed by the Dera chief. The probe was ordered after taking cognizance of the media reports.

The Haryana government had sought the high court's permission to undertake sanitization under judicial supervision.

Deputy director (information), Satish Mehra informed that the next course of action with regard to the sanitization operation will be decided by Friday evening after meeting between administration officials and Court Commissioner Pawar.

The report was quoted in the note to the UP Government.
