False Case of Human Sacrifice against Sant Rampal Ji.

In August 2014 a person due to mental health issues committed suicide in Satlok Ashram, Barwala by hanging himself in a bathroom. The police was shown CCTV footage where this person was seen pulling out his pyjama laces and then entering a bathroom. He was then found hanging in the bathroom after the door of the bathroom was forced open due to foul smell. The police on watching the footage classed it as suicide. Dissatisfied with the police action, the aides of the victim in September 2014 filed a petition in Punjab & Haryana High Court to demand a CBI probe in to the matter.

Following the event of Satlok Ashram siege in November 2014, a fresh murder case was registered by Police against Rampal Ji Maharaj after the Punjab & Haryana High Court reprimanded the police for not taking the case seriously.
