Searches at Sirsa dera headquarters end on third day

Mobile Internet services suspended in Sirsa

In the first few hours, five people including two minors were rescued from the sect headquarter in Sirsa while the search team also seized a large amount of cash including banned currency, plastic money, computers and hard discs.

Investigators digging into the murky world of flamboyant guru Ram Rahim Singh have uncovered two secret tunnels, including one that connected the Dera Sacha Sauda chief's residence with a hostel for female disciples.

Officials also sealed an illegal explosives factory which was found inside the sprawling 700-acre premises.

Talking to ANI, Deputy Director of Haryana PR Department Satish Mehra said that the search operation at Dera premises was continued on Saturday since 9 a.m.to 5 p.m.

Earlier in the day, the search revealed an illegal factory inside the premises.

Asked whether he would reach out to the followers of the Dera Sacha Sauda in future to seek votes, he said, "We seek votes from all".

The Dera headquarters include a township of its own, with schools, a sports village, a hospital, a shopping mall and a cinema hall.

Ram Rahim was convicted in the 1999 rape cases by a CBI special court in Panchkula on August 25.

Colts owner: Andrew Luck unlikely to start Week 1
Brissett has some starting experience despite being third on the depth chart behind Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo in New England. But the Colts still resisted the temptation of adding another veteran player to push backup QB Scott Tolzien in the offseason.

The authorities have also sealed two rooms in the Dera ashram after the massive raids conducted with 41 Paramilitary companies, 4 Army columns, police of 4 districts, one SWAT team, one dog squad and a bomb squad.

Internet services in Sirsa district were suspended by local authorities on Friday.

The dera complex has been divided into 10 zones for the objective of sanitisation and searches, with each zone under the control of a senior officer. The area where the Dera Chief resided was called as the 'Gufa' and it was spread over an area of 100 acres.

The 700-acre complex also houses a heart-shaped multi-specialty hospital, a luxury resort housed in a ship-shaped structure and an global school with towers sculpted like aeroplanes - all of these painted in bright hues of orange, purple and green.

"This grant was not given to Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh".

Security was tightened around the Dera headquarters near Sirsa town on Wednesday following the approval granted by the Punjab and Haryana High Court to the Haryana government to search and sanitize the premises.

His conviction led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa in Haryana.
