The incharge of Dera Sacha Sauda centre at Salabatpura, in Bathinda district was arrested on Thursday, a senior Punjab Police official said.
“Zora Singh has been arrested,” Bathinda Zone IG, M S Chhina said.
Singh has been booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including sedition, he said.
Singh was among those accused of triggering violence in Bathinda following the conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in a rape case by a special CBI Court at Panchkula last month, he said.
Zora Singh will be produced before court today
Dera Sacha Saudas Salabatpura centre in Bathinda district is the biggest one in Punjab.
However, there was no clue about where the godman’s adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan was.
Haryana police and paramilitary forces are all ready to enter the Dera headquarters at Sirsa today to exercise the “sanitisation” process of Dera headquarters.
The order of crackdown on headquarters of Dera by the High Court came a day after a huge cache of guns and ammunition were recovered from the premises.
The sanitisation process will be overseen by the Court Commissioner.
Haryana police personnel, paramilitary forces, duty magistrates, executive magistrates and revenue officials will also be part of the exercise.
