Trouble mounts for Gurmeet Ram Rahim in Panchkula violence case

The trouble has mounted for self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh as his ex-aide has filed a petition in the court seeking to book him for Panchkula violence that erupted after his conviction in a rape case in 2017. The former aide of Gurmeet Ram Rahim has alleged that the violene was perpetrated in the city under the direction of Dera Sach Sauda chief.

A driver of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Khatta Singh, alleged that a lot of public property was damaged during the violence and he (Dera Sacha Sauda Chief) was the culprit behind the violence.

Meanwhile, Khatta Singh has filed a petition in the court that Ram Rahim Singh be made a prime accused in Panchkula violence. The petition came after the name of rapist Gurmeet Ram Rahim was missing from the FIR number 345. According to Khatta Singh, Ram Rahim directed Honeypreet and Dr Aditya Insan to commit the violence. In his petition, he (Singh) has cited one Subhash Chandra’s statement.
