Jaipur: A Jaipur court on Thursday ordered a fresh probe into the alleged involvement of incarnated self-styled godman Ram Rahim in the mysterious disappearance of a Jaipur-based woman from Dera Sacha Sauda two years ago. The court rejected the final report (FR) submitted by the Jaipur police in the matter and asked them to probe the case and prepare an investigation report within a month. The FIR had been registered with the Jaipur police in 2015, but the family members of the woman alleged that the police under pressure of the self-styled godman filed a final report and closed the case. The family members had last month moved a protest petition in the court of additional chief judicial magistrate (ACJM) (No- 7) , requesting it to order the police to reopen the case. Ram Rahim accused of kidnapping Jaipur woman; family requests case be reopenedThe court on Thursday asked the Jawahar Nagar police to re-investigate. The girl’s lawyer Babulal Bairwa said that the woman, a resident of Jagatpura slum area, was taken to Dera Sacha Sauda in Haryana’s Sirsa by a sewadar of Ram Rahim. One DPS Dutta who was allegedly managing director of the Dera Sacha Sauda was also named in the FIR when the woman – Guddi – went missing, Bairwa told the PinkCity Post. He further alleged that the police closed the case on ridiculous grounds, addressing Ram Rahim as Guruji in the final report (FR) and even refused to admit the existence of DPS Dutta. “The police admitted that the woman had gone missing from Dera Sacha Sauda, but said since Ram Rahim has Z-plus security, they were unable to interrogate him,” said Bairwa. He added that the court heard the evidence in the case and ordered the police to reopen the case. Ram Rahim has been accused of criminal conspiracy in a case registered under section 365 of IPC for kidnap. A Panchkula court convicted the self-styled godman in a case of sexual harassment recently. The case, filed in 2002, accuses Ram Rahim of sexually exploiting two women followers at his ashram; he has denied any wrongdoing. Related story:
