Ram Rahim Singh tells HC

The new information could be vital in the investigation into the allegations of mass castration of devotees held at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa, Haryana.

On August 28, a CBI court awarded 20-year-imprisonment to Ram Rahim Singh for the rape and criminal intimidation of two "Sadhvis" (women followers) who were residing in a hostel located on the premises of the Dera back in 1999.

It is also reported that female police officers were dressed as dummies of Honeypreet and her associate Sukjdeep Kaur.

The statements of all five Dera supporters - Rakesh, Chamkaur Singh, Dan Singh, Dilawar and Surinder Singh - have been videographed by the police.

A team of medical experts has been assigned to find out whether there was a natural explanation for the missing testicles. Apart from her, another accused Rakesh Kumar Arora was also grilled for the same.

A former Dera Sacha Sauda member in 2012 had alleged that at least 400 men were castrated after being drugged inside the sect's Sirsa campus.

Daan Singh's advocate Navkiran Singh said he was not surprised by the latest findings and added that he was expecting the Central Bureau of Investigation's probe into the matter to conclude soon.

He claimed that the police had figured out Honeypreet's hideouts from August 25 - after she left Rohtak jail where Ram Rahim is lodged - to September 2.

The rape convict's counsel told the High Court that his client had renounced the world and his properties have been attached by the state, so he can not pay the fine.

In 2014, the Punjab High Court had concluded that Chauhan was castrated, possibly on Singh's orders. His lawyer SK Garg Narwana told the media that the High Court has admitted their appeal and asked them to deposit a fine which shall be refunded with interest in the face of the appeal being accepted.
