Chandigarh: In a shocking revelation, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s demanded “red bag” was actually a signal for his men to spread the news of his conviction among supporters so that they could resort to causing disturbance, said Inspector General of Police KK Rao on Wednesday.
The Dera chief demanded the bag, saying his clothes were in it. As the bag was taken out of the Ram Rahim’s SUV, sounds of tear gas shells were heard about 2-3 km from the court, as per sources.
Notably, while taking Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh to jail after he was held guilty of rape last week; the Haryana police stymied an attempt by the self-appointed spiritual leader’s “commandos” to free him.
The 50-year-old chief of the Dera Sacha Sauda has been sentenced to 20 years in jail for raping two followers.
