ED, I-T teams in Sirsa to probe assets of Dera Sacha Sauda

By Chennabasaveshwar

The Enforcement Directorate and Income Tax Department teams have arrived in Sirsa to probe assets of Dera Sacha Sauda as directed by Punjab and Haryana High Court.

Last month, the high court had directed central agencies to examine the Dera Sacha Sauda sect's assets and check for violation of rules, two weeks after the sanitization of the Dera complex was conducted under the supervision of a Court Commissioner.

The full bench of the court also passed directions for setting up tribunals in Haryana and Punjab to assess claims of properties damaged in the violence that followed the August 25 sentencing of sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who was convicted of rape.

The three-day-long exercise to sanitise the sect headquarters at Sirsa, from September 8 to 10, had led to the unearthing of two secret tunnels, an illegal firecracker factory and the sealing of an unlicensed skin bank.
