CBI probe into spiritual sect sought in Haryana.
How has India responded to this?
CHANDIGARH: A senior IAS officer from Haryana has levelled serious allegations against some 'associates' of spiritual sect, Brahma Kumaris, for their 'criminal' activities. In a communication to Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot, Haryana's financial commissioner R R Fuliya, has sought CBI inquiry as the headquarter of the organization, Mount Abu, falls in the jurisdiction of his state. Alleging that police have failed to conduct impartial probe in many cases of murders and rapes, he has also written to Haryana chief secretary Urvashi Gulati for her intervention into the matter.
On Thursday, Fuliya along with a few others, including a woman from Mount Abu, held a press conference here and levelled serious allegations. He had also sat on hunger strike from March 17 to 24 at Mount Abu in Rajasthan. In his letter to Rajasthan CM, Fuliya said, "A few years ago, when I was divisional commissioner in Hisar, some serious crimes were committed in the sewa kendra of Barwala town and Panipat by some people of these kendras." Giving names of accused and deceased, Fuliya further said, "In 2005, these people kidnapped a devotee, who was probably killed later on.
