Complainant denies filing affidavit in case against dera chief

BATHINDA: In a new turn to the case against Dera Sachha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh wearing clothes similar to that of 10th guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, and hurting sentiments of community members, the complainant on Saturday told the court that he had not submitted any affidavit to police stating that he was not present at Dera Salabatpura in Punjab and did not see the dera chief dressed up like the Sikh guru.

Complainant Rajinder Singh Sidhu, who had been issued summons by court on January 28 to remain present in court on Saturday, told the court that he had not filed any affidavit. Sidhu, who is president of Khalsa Diwan Gurdwara Singh Sabha, Bathinda, moved an application in the court seeking documents submitted by police on his behalf. Sidhu told TOI that the affidavit was filed by police on January 27 in the court, along with statements of two other people. The court has now adjourned the case to February 11.
