Search Operation At Dera Headquarter In Sirsa Almost Complete

Sirsa: The Dera headquarter search operation in Sirsa that continued for the third day on Sunday is almost complete now. The raids have found huge cache of arms, explosive factory on the premises and other objectionable material.

"Search operation at Dera Sacha Sauda headquarter in Sirsa is 99% complete," said Deputy Director of Haryana PR department Satish Mehra on Sunday.
Local authorities and security forces continued their search operation at the Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters near Haryana's Sirsa town for the third day on Sunday.
Curfew continued in the villages around the headquarters premises with paramilitary forces and Haryana Police keeping a strict watch.
Officials said that court commissioner A.K. Pawar, appointed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court to supervise the operation of the sprawling 700-acre Dera headquarters, is likely to hold a meeting with civil and police officers on Sunday evening to assess the progress and decide on how long it will continue.
Some former followers of the sect who had broken away from it, alleged that nothing big had been found in the search operation that began on Friday.
They alleged that the Dera management could have taken away incriminating evidence and other things.
Two secret tunnels and an illegal explosives factory were found inside the premises on Saturday.
Haryana government spokesman Satish Mishra said a case has been registered against the Dera.
Irregularities were found in the functioning of the hospital inside the Dera campus. These included a skin clinic being operated without licence, irregularities in pregnancy tests and the bodies being sent to other hospitals.
One of the tunnels was linked from the "gufa" (cave), a huge pink coloured building that was the ultra-luxury home of the rape-convicted sect chief, to the hostel for female disciples (sadhvis).
According to sources, the search teams also found hundreds of pairs of shoes, designer clothes and colourful caps of the now jailed Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
