Faridkot, June 13

Continuing its investigation in a sacrilege case, the SIT raided the house of Mohinder Pal Bittu, a state committee member of Dera Sacha Sauda, at Kotkapura on Wednesday.

Bittu is in police custody. The SIT recovered 28 used cartridges of a revolver and a book on the life of a Sikh Guru.

RS Khatra, DIG, and SIT head, claimed the religious book was lying in a shoe rack. The SIT members also searched the house of Sukhjinder Singh, alias Sunny Kanda, another dera follower, besides raiding the shopping mall of the dera at Kotkapura. However, nothing objectionable was found. Kanda was arrested on June 8.

Khatra said: “We can’t divulge more details since the CBI is probing these cases.”

Meanwhile, Sikh hardliners asked the CM to come out with the progress of the investigation in sacrilege cases.
