Slain scribe's son welcomes Dera chief's sentencing

Chandigarh: The son of a scribe, who was allegedly murdered 15 years back for trying to expose the exploitation of female disciples by Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, today welcomed the sentence handed to the self styled godman. "I welcome the quantum of sentence to Dera chief by the court," said Anshul, son of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati who was shot dead from point blank range at his residence in Sirsa.

The big thing is that it has been established that Singh committed a heinous crime, Anshul said. This was not accepted by the society earlier, he added. "The court has unmasked the fraud seer. My father's struggle against him has become fruitful today," he said terming the quantum of sentence a tribute to Chhatrapati's struggle.
Successive governments in Haryana had "never cooperated with us," Anshul said. We had no hope from those in the power corridors, but had faith in the judicial system, he said. He hailed the CBI's investigation in the rape case against the Dera head.
