Charged with inciting violence in Panchkula which killed at least 40 people, he is likely to be presented before a court in Panchkula.

Earlier on August 25, the same CBI court had convicted Gurmeet Singh in case of rape against female disciples. According to Haryana director general of police B.S. Sandhu, adequate para military and Haryana police personnel are stationed around the court complex in Sector 1 here and other areas in Panchkula town.

Dilawar, a core member of the Dera, was arrested from Sonipat district. They have been booked under the relevant sections of the IPC, including the sedition charge, said Singh. Several parts of Haryana, Punjab and Rajasthan had witnessed large-scale violence following his conviction in the two rape cases on August 25.

Ranjit, who had distanced himself from the dera, was called to Sirsa in June 2002 and threatened by accused Avtar Singh and Inder Sain to seek apology from Ram Rahim for having circulated an anonymous letter regarding the alleged rape of sadhvis.
