    Dera chief made respondent
    Tribune News Service

    Chandigarh, July 27

    Acting on a petition for a CBI probe into the alleged castration of 400 “sadhus” at Dera Sacha Sauda headed by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the Punjab and Haryana High Court today made him a respondent.

    The court also issued a notice for October 10 on an application for the medical examination of petitioner Hans Raj Chauhan and seven other sadhus.

    In his petition filed through counsel Navkiran Singh, petitioner Chauhan of Fatehabad district alleged that the victims were castrated on the false hope that “ males who would get themselves castrated would be able to achieve God through Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh”.

    He also sought compensation for himself and “such-like sadhus who have been rendered impotent and are unable to procreate”.

    Directions have also been sought for providing adequate security to the petitioner and his parents.

    Navkiran Singh said the petitioner had faced hormonal imbalance because of castration. He had lost body hair and developed breasts. “The petitioner has become incapable of having children and he has to face humiliation at the hands of the general public, that treats him as eunuch”.

    He said 100 of the 400 castrated sadhus were being used to protect Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s family.

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!
