The Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Ram Rahim has been in jail for three months now but the violence that erupted on the 25th of August still haunts the residents of Panchkula. As much as 30 people died in the violence that erupted right after the conviction of Ram Rahim and an approximate 300 people were left injured in Panchkula. It was only after the storm settled down that the Police started seeing things clearly.
Ram Rahim had pre-planned all the violence and also an escape plan along with his so-called daughter Honeypreet Insan. The Panchkula Police have arrested a senior Punjab Police Assistant Sub Inspector that helped Ram Rahim in the unsuccessful fleeing attempt.
Assistant Sub Inspector Makhan Singh of Punjab Police Held For Assisting Ram Rahim
The Panchkula verdict of Ram Rahim was to be followed by an escape event which somehow went on unsuccessful. Ram Rahim had all the help he needed to flee from his arrest. From the events that came to light after the Panchkula incident he had Police officers from Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana at his aid. Even the commandos that were posted in Ram Rahim’s Sirsa Dera were apparently bought out. Almost eight Police officials from Haryana, and three Police Officers had already been arrested for the arrest of Makhan Singh, Assistant Sub-inspector of Punjab Police.
All these officers were to aid Ram Rahim’s escape on the 25th of August after his conviction in Panchkula. Makhan Singh has been produced in a local court and is currently being remanded by the Police.
