CBI to file case against Dera Sacha Sauda chief today

CBI is likely to register a case against Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh of Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda on Monday in connection with the alleged forced castration of his followers inside his Dera.

CBI sources said the FIR was to be registered on Saturday but could not be done because of some technical issues and is likely to be registered on Monday.

They said the agency move is the result of a Punjab and Haryana High Court order directing it to take action against the Dera chief, who is soon going to make his movie debut with “Messenger of God”.
A former Dera follower, Hansraj Chauhan, had approached the High Court alleging that he, along with around 400 saints of the Dera, was castrated inside the ashram on the orders of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

Seeking a CBI probe, Chauhan has claimed before the bench that castration process of Dera followers is being done by the chief through doctors employed in his hospital.

Chauhan had said in the petition that they were assured that those who would get castrated will be able to meet the God through the Dera head.

Justice K Kannan of the High Court passed the order on the petition ordering a CBI inquiry into the incident.

Taking cognisance of the petition, the HC had earlier ordered medical examination of petitioner Chauhan from the government multi-speciality hospital which found that he has been castrated.
