The Haryana Police today said it has arrested three policemen who allegedly conspired to help Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh escape after his conviction.
Two head constables and a constable were part of the Dera chiefs security detail during his appearance before a CBI court which held him guilty of raping two of his followers.
The cops were arrested in Panchkula and called to join the investigation, said Panchkula Deputy Commissioner of Police Manbir Singh.
They have been booked under the relevant sections of the IPC, including the sedition charge, said Singh.
“We have arrested three Haryana policemen who were part of the Dera sect chiefs security on August 25,” he said.
The DCP said Head Constable Amit, Head Constable Rajesh and Constable Rajesh will be in police custody for three days.
The Haryana Police had dismissed five policemen who were also part of the Dera chiefs security detail.
Besides them, three cops from the Punjab police had also been arrested.
