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.”
