Another shocking development from the Dera Sacha Sauda Headquarters in Sirsa, as its chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh undergoes a 20-year sentence in Rohtak jail after his conviction on August 25 for raping two of his female disciples.
During an interrogation by a Special Investigation Team (SIT), a close aide of the self-styled Godman, Former Dera vice-president, Dr PR Nain revealed that nearly 600 skeletons are buried inside the Dera headquarters.
He also revealed to the SIT that on the advice of a German scientist, Dera started planting saplings on the land where the skeletons were buried.
While it is suspected that these skeletons may have been of those killed and buried by the ‘rapist baba’, the Dera officials claim that they were the skeletons of those Dera supporters, who had wished to be buried inside the Dera premises.
According to a report on India Today, a woman follower has claimed that her child is missing from Dera headquarters since the last 12 years.The woman, who is a resident of Panipat, alleged that she had donated her 2-month-old kid to Dera after she was persuaded by an advertisement in the newspaper that urged the Dera followers to donate their kids for ‘seva’ (service) at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa.
