Just before authorities will start a search and sanitization operation inside the Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters campus near Sirsa town in Haryana, the sect’s mouthpiece “Sach Kahoon” has disclosed that human remains were buried inside the properties.
The newspaper defended the action of Dera management in burying human remains saying this was done as sect chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh encouraged followers to contribute the remains to the sect for burial and avoid these from being immersed in rivers as it causes pollution.
The human remains were buried within the campus and trees were planted on it, claimed the newspaper.
However, people who were earlier associated with the sect but left later have alleged that the sect chief got killed people who opposed his activities and buried them inside the campus.
Ram Rahim was convicted for raping two female disciples in 1999 on 25 August. He was sentenced to 20 years of rigorous imprisonment. He is currently lodged in the district jail at Sunaria near Rohtak.
