HC orders CBI probe into castration of followers inside Dera Sacha Sauda
CHANDIGARH: In a huge blow to Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the head of Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda, the Punjab and Haryana high court on Tuesday ordered a CBI probe into the charges of forced castration of his followers inside the dera.
Justice K Kannan of the HC has passed these orders in the wake of a petition filed by Hansraj Chauhan, a former follower of the DSS.
In his petition, Chauhan had claimed that he along with around 400 Sadhus of dera were allegedly castrated inside the dera with the false hope that the males who would get castrated would be able to meet God through dera head, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
Taking cognizance of the main petition, the HC had earlier ordered to conduct the medical examination of petitioner Chuahan from the government multi-specialty hospital (GMSH) at sector-16, Chandigarh. The GMSH authorities examined Chauhan and found that he has been castrated.
Seeking a CBI probe, Chauhan has also claimed before the high court that castration process of dera followers is being done by Gurmeet Ram Rahim through medical doctors who are employed in his hospital.
Even, in a report submitted before the Punjab and Haryana high court, the state government had informed that it has recorded the statements of seven persons, associated with the dera head, in which all of them have confirmed that they have been castrated.

We have no provision of castration for rapists, but at least we can force them to join DSS to get the same effect. Lol.
are we still living in a modern India. How can our people be such massive fools.
I am a follower too, and no such ill-practice z being carried out in dera. these all r false claims. no one asks us to stay in dera, no one says that wid dera lead u can meet god. dera lead himself says every day, meditation z d only way to god. so please before abusing dera n followers and comparing dera lead wid rampal, get to know the truths . may god show you the righteous path.

This Dera chief has to be first castrated , then it has to be cut & cooked and fed to him and let's see how fast he meets his god !
It is reported that Sushma Swaraj had met him to request him for supporting the BjP at the time of elections in Haryana.

Absolute shame . No sense of proportion as to whom to ask for what ?
A senior leader going to a fake baba and requesting him for votes is something which makes such fake babas important.

Cbi won't touch this man as he favoured bjp before elections. Now bjp will do a favour to him.

Now I am convinced, 80% of India is still primitive and is likely to remain so, as long as there is religious indoctrination.
i see no problem ? if they want to be castrated then let them be .
