    CBI court's clean chit to Dera chief in murder case

    Friday 24th December, 2010

    A Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court here Friday gave a clean chit to controversial Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmit Ram Rahim Singh in the murder of sect functionary Faqir Chand.

    CBI special court judge Abdul Majid ordered Friday that the murder case be closed after the agency, which investigated the murder case, filed a closure report saying that no evidence was found against the sect's chief.

    The court order is likely to come as a major relief to the sect chief, who is also facing two other cases of murder conspiracy and one of rape.

    The CBI had filed the closure report in the case earlier this month.

    The case pertained to the disappearance and murder of Faqir Chand, who was working as a manager at the dera. The victim had gone missing in 1991 and his brother Ram Kumar had alleged that he had been killed at the behest of the sect chief.

    However, after investigating the case, the CBI said that no evidence was found in the murder charge against the sect chief.

    The CBI was handed the case February following an order of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, which had been approached by the victim's relative who said that the Haryana Police investigation into Faqir Chand's disappearance was not proper.

    However, the other two murder conspiracy cases and one rape case against the sect chief will continue in the CBI special court here.

    The sect chief, who has a following of millions in Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and other states, has been involved in several controversies.

    So Ram Rahim Whuzzit is innocent and Dr. Binayak Sen is guilty!

    What an eloquent commentary of Indian justice!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
