HC allows police to launch massive crack down on Ram Rahim’s Sirsa ashram
New Delhi: Days after self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was jailed on rape charges, the Punjab and Haryana High court has allowed conducting a search and evacuation operation in Dera Sacha Sauda’s Sirsa headquarters.
The HC ordered the crackdown on headquarters of Dera a day after a huge cache of guns and ammunition were recovered from the premises.
The Sirsa ashram was at the centre of the controversy surrounding Gurmeet Ram Rahim and after his conviction, a number of other incidents had also come to the limelight.
After speculations over illegal activities taking over inside the Dera headquarter, Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday had said that a search operation would be launched at the Dera headquarters under the supervision of the court.
