  • Dera Chief wanted to meet his wife Guddi personally
  • FIR was registered at the city’s Jawahar Circle police station on charges of abduction and criminal conspiracy

Jaipur, Rajasthan, August 28, 2017: Kamlesh Kumar from Rajasthan lost his wife 2 years back at Dera. Now he wants justice as the rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Dera Sacha Sauda chief has been jailed.

The Rohtak court has today awarded 10 years rigorous life sentence to Ram Rahim. While the godman cries and pleads guilty before the court, activists and victims argue that the verdict was not fair enough after 15 years of wait.

His lawyer Babulal Bairwa said, “Kamlesh Kumar, a 27-year-old laborer from Jaipur, lost his wife during a family visit to the Sirsa-based Dera on March 24, 2015.”

Kumar’s wife’s name is Guddi (she was in her 20’s), she was allegedly taken aside by a volunteer as the “Dera Chief wanted to meet her personally”, lawyer Bairwa said. According to PTI report, Bairwa said, “That was the last time that Kumar saw his wife.” Kamlesh Kumar and his children searched for her, when he asked some Dera volunteers, they told him to wait for few days.

The lawyer also said that Kumar approached the Sirsa police when Guddi did not return but the police didn’t help him in any way. He had no option but to seek court’s help.

Bairwa said that as per the directions of the court in Jaipur FIR was registered at the city’s Jawahar Circle police station on charges of abduction and criminal conspiracy on May 5, 2015.

But, the investigating officer who filed a final report in the case failed to record the statement of the 50- year-old Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. This made Kumar file a “protest petition” in the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) court on February 18, 2017. Bairwa said that the hearing date which has been fixed by the court is 7 September.

Rajesh Soni, SHO of Jawahar Circle police station said that “Then SHO and investigating officer had filed a final report in the matter related to Kumar’s complaint but added that he was not aware of its content,” mentions PTI report.

Bairwa has a hope that the rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh who got jailed by a CBI court would help  Kamlesh Kumar to get justice.

Singh’s conviction in a 15- year-old rape case on 25 August 2017 saw his followers protest in various places, creating heavy chaos and damage in Haryana, Punjab, and Rajasthan. It lead to the death of 38 people till now. The protests also reached Ghaziabad, Noida, and Delhi. Jagdeep Singh, CBI court judge will fly to the Sunaria jail in Rohtak today where he would declare the duration of the jail sentence that Singh would get at 2.30 p.m.

Big hotel chains in Rajasthan are helping the local economy grow by providing newer employment avenues to the natives.

These hotels are hiring local people to showcase the colourful heritage of Rajasthan to guests coming from different parts of the world.

Ibis, an Accor brand, recently re-launched its property in Civil Lines, Jaipur, in which locals were engaged in the task to design a vibrant and colourful lobby with traditional Pichwai artwork connecting to the ethic charm of the Pink city.

The property also showcases a quirky auto and bike parked outside the lobby which comes in different shades of pink connecting with the theme of the pink City. Again, in this perspective, the local students’ views were taken into account to make the pretty decor of the auto and bike, said Saumitra Chaturvedi, General Manager, Ibis Jaipur Civil Lines.

Further, the hotel had hired a local band, Marudhar, during the relaunch of the property, which has got six local members who shot to fame after displaying their talent in ‘India’s Got Talent’.

Chaturvedi said, “It gives me immense pleasure to showcase the revamped Ibis property in Jaipur which has been designed after seeking services of local artists. We look forward to serving the best blend of local and global in terms of food, delicacies and experiences, he added.

The other property pushing local economy to new heights is Alila Fort Bishangarh where locals are engaged in diverse tasks including garden landscaping, housekeeping, driving and even the kitchen for dishes, said Binny Sebastian, General Manager, Alila Fort Bishangarh’s heritage hotel, some 50 km from Jaipur.

As our property is situated on the outskirts, the surrounding villages had people engaged in farming and hence we are training them in diverse tasks to ensure they have a decent source of earning. Now, the villages look changed as there are many shops and businesses coming around, he adds.

These guests are also taken around for a barber shop where they love to get a hair massage done which is called as Champi in local language. Villagers are getting a decent price for it. We have a chai shop where guests are taken and they pay villagers a decent sum for a tea.

Then comes as zero mile cuisine system we have introduced recently where food produced within the vicinity of one mile is being served to guests. This again boosts local economy, Sebastian says.

This Diwali, we gifted paper bag made from newspapers with an earthen pot having tulsi plant grown in our garden. Again local services were taken to make bags and pots, he adds.

“Our association with locals is quite strong. Our guests also visit the artisans’ houses and sip tea there while watching them make pottery and weave carpet. In this way, we ensure that locals get a decent livelihood,” Sebastian added.

“We have started getting regular income since this property came up a year back. We have been showing our art to the guests here which gives us satisfaction as well as an income,” said Nizamuddin, a bangle maker engaged in Alila Fort, Bishangarh. (IANS)
