The Inspector General of Police, Haryana has made a shocking revelation that the rape convict Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim had cooked a secret plan to get off clandestinely after the announcement of the judgement from the Panchkula court instead of going to jail and in order to make this secretive plan successful his code was the red hand bag which he asked for in the court premises after his conviction so as to send the message across for rioting and creating confusion in order to get himself mixed up in the crowd and run away to an unknown destination.
But the extremely vigilant police and crime branch officers by their intelligence and alertness were able to kill his plan and take his custody forcibly by literally thrashing his Z plus commandos who had done their best to help the rape accused flee from the police custody through the commandos were on government rolls but became Baba’s confidante due to their being in his company for more than a decade. This was revealed in an interview to the India TV reporter by the IG Police of Haryana Mr. K. Rao while explaining details of this harrowing story on 29th August in his popular program AAJ KI BAAT.
While disclosing this interesting fact KK Rao said that on the day of BABA Ram Rahim’s conviction at Panchkula court the rape convict has full idea about his possible conviction and therefore had planned that in case he gets the sentence or is send to jail he will inform his trusted key men by a code and that code was a red bag that he asked for when convicted and was likely to be escorted to Sunaira Jail of Rohtak. IG Rao said as soon as the court ordered Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s conviction and subsequent judicial custody till next Monday, (the day of the pronouncement of his sentence) while coming out of the courtroom Ram Rahim asked for RED BAG and in minutes the message reached his supporters and followers far away from the court premises that the later has been arrested. Within minutes the rampage, arson and burning of vehicles and press vans started creating confusion all around sending the police force and other law enforcing agencies into a tizzy.
The 10, Z plus security cover commandos who were with Baba for the last several years took him into their personal custody and wanted to take him away said IG police KK RAO with the pre-strategic plan of clandestinely getting away. But the intelligence, alertness and bravery of the police and crime branch officers, their plan was foiled totally. The police and IG himself literally fought with the commandos and disarmed them of their AK 47 RIFLES and physically pushed and bundled them into the police van after enough thrashing thus forcibly taking the rape convict baba in their custody. Had the police not been successful in controlling the commandos and snatching their arms there would have been firing and hundreds of people could have died in the cross firing.
But the crisis was intelligently averted without a single casualty. Since a distance away about 80 cars full of Baba’s supporters and muscle men including criminals were waiting for him to take him away from the police grip or custody, the IG police, Haryana KK Rao immediately contacted the Colonel of the cantonment and requested him to be ready to allow them to enter the high-security cantonment area with the high profile rape convict in order to safely and clandestinely parcel him to the Sunaira Jail secretly without letting Baba’s supporters and rioters know about his actual whereabouts. Rao immediately took the Cantonment route in Panchkula and thus was able to foil Baba’s plan of clandestine escape from the police custody by creating confusion and run away with his supporters who came to the court with 80 cars. In the meanwhile in another revelation a retired CBI officers Narayanan on whose shoulders the actual credit goes to make this case an air tight one confronting various odds and challenges years ago revealed how several members of parliaments exerted pressure on him to go slow in this highly sensitive case but he never relented and worked hard day and night risking his life and job for years together. Mr. Narayanan also received several threatening calls with dire consequences. In view of the immense political pressure this case lagged behind for 15 protracted years finally meeting its climax on 28th August when the rape accused self-styled high profile Godman was sentenced to 20 years of rigorous imprisonment.
What a shock? 15 long years?
