Search at Ram Rahim’s Dera HQ: Luxury car, old notes, hard disks seized
Sirsa: Jailed guru Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s sprawling base in Haryana’s Sirsa was raided today by teams of officials and policemen who went with hundreds of paramilitary troops.
A luxury car without a registration plate, old currency notes and several hard disks containing crucial information were on Friday seized from the headquarters of the Dera Saccha Sauda.
The mammoth exercise involves a coordinated effort by security forces and various government departments.
The search was being conducted under the supervision of court commissioner AKS Pawar appointed by the Punjab and Haryana High Courts. Forty-one paramilitary companies, four Army columns, cops from as many districts, a SWAT team, and a dog squad have been deployed for the search of the Dera headquarters.
A huge amount of medicines without labels have been found. Pharmacy medicines without label/brand found, OB Van, also found, according to reports.
The Dera campus is replete with symbols of Ram Rahim’s extravagance and megalomania, with replicas of the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, Kremlin and Disney World created in a seven-star “MSG resort” and giant posters of the Dera chief everywhere. The campus includes an “international school”, shops, a hospital, a stadium, houses and a cinema theatre that screens Ram Rahim’s “MSG” franchise movies.
Ram Rahim’s closest aides Honeypreet Insan and Aditya Insan are being hunted by the police, who have carried out raids in Mumbai and areas near Nepal.
