By Vicky

Ram Chander Chahatrapati was shot dead after he published an anonymous letter in which the Dera Sacha chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan was accused of sexually abusing two sadhvis.

On October 24 2002, Ram Chander, the journalist who ran the newspaper Poora Sach was shot dead at point blank range in front of his house. The trial is in the final stages before the same CBI court which convicted Ram Rahim on rape charges on Friday.

The anonymous letter published by Chhatrapati in his newspaper was addressed to then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and heads of several other institutions including the Chief Juctice of Punjab and Haryana High Court.

In the three page letter written in Hindi written allegedly by a woman follower, it was stated that the Dera chief sexually exploited women.

Initially due to police inaction, Ram Chander's son had petitioned the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking a probe into the murder of his father. The legal battle for Anshul began when the police did not include the Dera chief's name in the FIR. His father had battled for life for 28 years before breathing his last.
