Five Dera Sacha Sauda followers accused of murder

Five followers of the Dera Sacha Sauda were produced in a court here today on murder charges.

Ambala (Haryana), May 22 : Five followers of the Dera Sacha Sauda were produced in a court here today on murder charges.

The five people, former office-bearers of the Dera Sacha Sauda, have been accused of murdering fellow member Ranjit Singh after he tried to expose the alleged misdeeds of the Dera chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a charge sheet against these five disciples of Singh for the alleged murder of Ranjit Singh.

The CBI had taken up the case on the orders of the High Court, following receipt of an anonymous complaint that alleged that the widespread sexual abuse of 'sadhvis' or women followers in the Dera.

Ranjit Singh, who was in the ten-member committee looking after the functions of the Dera, was murdered on July 10, 2002. Inmates believed he was behind the circulation of an anonymous letter to the High Court.

While two of the five people arrested are prime suspects in the murder, the other three have been named accomplices.

"A witness named Ekhattar Singh has filed an application saying that he has not given any statement to the CBI. The statement which the CBI has is not correct. The date given in the application is June 9, and along with it, these cases have also been added to it," said Umesh Gandhi, lawyer for the CBI.

The CBI is investigating three cases against Dera members including the alleged sexual exploitation of 'sadhvis', the murder of a journalist and the killing of Ranjit Singh, a former manager of a Dera.
