Chandigarh: There is no denying the fact that its getting worse for Gurmeet Ram Rahim. Dilawar Singh Insaan, a close aide of controversial ‘godman’ Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and key Dera Sacha Sauda functionary, has been arrested by the Haryana Police on Thursday.
Initial signs are that Dilawar has been charged for inciting violence that broke out after the rape conviction of the Dera chief, killing at least 40, the police added.
Dilawar, a key Dera spokesperson, was arrested from Panipat. He will be presented before a court in Panchkula on Friday, Haryana Director General of Police (DGP) B S Sandhu told mediapersons.
The significant factor here is that he went underground following Singh’s conviction by special CBI court on August 25.
The policemen — two head constables and a constable — were part of the Dera chief’s security detail during his appearance before a CBI court which held him guilty of raping two of his followers.
The cops were arrested in Panchkula where they were called to join the investigation, said Panchkula Deputy Commissioner of Police Manbir Singh.
They have been booked under the relevant sections of the IPC, including the sedition charge, said Mr Singh.
