Dera Sachcha Sauda-the most talked about scandal, had a promoter living in Udaipur. He has now been arrested by Haryana police.
A man has been arrested for promoting Dera in Udaipur. After the “Dera” scandal came to light, it is said that this man Pradeep Goyal sent followers from Udaipur to Sirsa to be part of the riots in favour of Dera guru Ram Rahim.
Pradeep came to Udaipur 4 years back with his family from Harayana. He worked for some transport company and was very active in adding people to Dera Sachcha Sauda. He lived in Nakoda nagar in Hiranmagri Sector 14 in a rented accommodation and later left for Jhadol. After some time he came back to Udaipur and started living in the same colony. Neighbours do not much about Pradeep Goyal. As per them, he was an ordinary man living with family.
The neighbours also said that they never heard of his connections with Ram Rahim. As per Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria, Haryana police are now interrogating Pradeep. Only after the interrogation can the police reach to a conclusion about his connections and his work regarding Dera.
It may be noted that after the arrest of Ram Rahim, riots took place in Sirsa for which a number of supporters from Udaipur were sent to Sirsa in buses. It has also been reported that each person sent to Sirsa was promised an amount of 25 thousand rupees to support the riots. Police arrested Pradeep on Saturday after a search of 2 days.
After the riots began in Sirsa, Honeypreet(the adopted daughter of Ram Rahim) was supposedly located in Barmer. It has been said that Honeypreet was in Udaipur on Monday and she also visited celebration mall. From Udaipur, she went to visit the ashrams in Jhadol and Kotda. She also met a few people who are connected to Dera. Somehow she came to know that police would be searching for her Udaipur. She left for Nepal to escape police. Nepal also has a number of Dera followers.
