Panchkula: The Special Investigation Team (SIT) that has been formed to investigate cases of violence that happened after the court announced its verdict for Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has found that Dera had given around Rs 5 crore to various groups and individuals to fuel violence.
According to reports, Panchkula branch head Chamkaur Singh was the key person who managed the money that was received by the Dera management. Chamkaur, a resident of Dhakoli in Maholi, is reportedly absconding with his family after a sedition case was registered against him based on an SC direction on August 28.
The Dera had sent money to various places in Punjab and Haryana, including Panchkula, where violence broke out after the Dera chief was convicted.
Haryana Director General of Police (DGP) BS Sandhu said that the team was conducting raids at all possible locations to catch Chamkaur. The DGP feels that more details will unfurl once he is arrested.
Sandhu further highlighted that those who had a hand in inciting violence in Panchkula are under police radar and even pointed out that one prominent person in the case is a horticulture scientist.
Police also believes that Chamkaur was not only active around the Panchkula court premises but was also controlling Sector 5, which was the epicenter of violence that took place on August 24.
The people who are being investigated for inciting violence include key Dera Sacha Sauda members Aditya Insaan, Honeypreet Insaan and Surender Dhiman Insaan.
