Panchkula police questions former Cong legislator; over Dera violence episode
A former Punjab based Congress legislator Harminder Singh Jassi was questioned for over seven hours by a special investigation team (SIT) in connection with the Dera Sacha Sauda violence in Panchkula on August 25 last year.
It need be mentioned that Jassi’s daughter is married to Dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s son.
Jassi has been a three time MLA and the Panchkula police is said to have questioned his role in the violence as he was found to have traveled from Mohali to Timber Trail in Parwanoo via Baddi along with the family members of the Dera head on August 25.
Panchkula police was also able to establish that from the Timber Trail, Jassi and Ram Rahim’s family members went to Rohtak to pick Honeypreet and later dropped her off at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa on August 26.
Jassi had earlier sought exemption from appearing before SIT but it was rejected by the Panchkula police.>
