Ram Rahim's Dera spokesperson Dilawar Insaan arrested

Four more cops from Haryana police were held in connection with the conspiracy planned to free Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh from the police custody on August 25.

Dilawar has been charged with inciting violence that broke out after the rape conviction of the Dera chief, killing at least 40, the police added. According to Haryana director general of police B.S. Sandhu, adequate para military and Haryana police personnel are stationed around the court complex in Sector 1 here and other areas in Panchkula town.

Earlier, the police had booked the Sirsa-based sect chief spokesperson Aditya Insaan and Ram Rahim's adopted daughter Honeypreet and sent out a lookout notice for them. The court sentenced him to 20-year jail term on August 28.

Honeypreet has also been accused of planning Ram Rahim's escape from Panchkula court. The CBI court is hearing the cases of murder of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati and former Dera manager Ranjit Singh.

The arrest of Dilawar assumed significance as he was one of the close aides of Ram Rahim Singh, state police officers said.

They were arrested after being called to join the investigation, said Panchkula Deputy Commissioner of Police Manbir Singh.

In wake of recent events embroiling the Dera Sacha Sauda whose head has been convicted for rape, Haryana Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma on Friday said that the Rs 51 lakh grant announced by him for the sect has been withdrawn. They were in Panchkula in police uniform.
