Dera’s IT head arrested

Agencies, Chandigarh

The Haryana Police has arrested the head of the IT cell of Dera Sacha Sauda for deleting crucial CCTV footage which could serve as evidence, media reports said. The arrest was made on Tuesday.

According to reports, computers in the sect’s headquarters were tampered with and hard disks removed or altered before police searched the premises. The Sirsa police seized 60 such hard disks on the information provided by Vineet Kumar, the dera’s IT head.

“During interrogation, he spilled the beans, confessing that the dera authorities had changed several hard disks before the search operation. A bag containing 60 such disks was found on the basis of inputs provided by him,” The Tribune quoted a police officer as saying.

The police also arrested the driver of the Lexus SUV car belonging to the dera that was torched near Phoolkan village on August 28, the day dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment for rape. Two secret tunnels and an illegal factory to make explosives were unearthed on the premises of the Dera headquarters at Sirsa.
