‘Medically fit’ Vipassana fails to appear for questioning, again
PANCHKULA: Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda chairperson Vipassana Insan yet again failed to turn up before the Panchkula police for questioning even as she was declared medically fit.
Vipassana was summoned for the first time on Tuesday by Haryana police for questioning its ongoing probe in the August 25 Panchkula violence, but citing medical grounds, she skipped the date.
Suspecting that she might have been faking her ill health, a team of doctors from Sirsa civil hospital was sent to the dera for her checkup on Thursday.
Speaking to HT, Panchkula deputy commissioner of police (DCP) Manbir Singh said, “Her medical report confirmed that she has no health problem that stops her from travelling.”
Reacting to her repeated default of police summons, Panchkula police commissioner AS Chawla said these things are definitely going against Vipassana.
“Her questioning is vital for our ongoing investigation into Panchkula violence. She had earlier called one of my officers and made excuses for her non-appearance. We have asked her to appear immediately and if she does not come by tomorrow (Friday), we will take appropriate action,” he said.
When asked if Vipassana will be arrested, he said, “Anything can happen if she continues to ignore police questioning.”
