The Haryana Health Minister, Mr Anil Vij, today ordered an inquiry into the Dera of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh allegedly sending 14 bodies to a medical college in Lucknow. He has asked the Director General, Health Services, to conduct an inquiry at the earliest.

Mr Vij said there had been reports in the media that about 14 bodies having been sent from Dera to a medical college in Lucknow. If this was done the formalities should have been completed. The reason for sending the bodies must be ascertained. Orders have been issued to examine the matter and find out facts in this case. 

The Health Minister said a year ago, he had gone to participate in a sports programme organized by the Dera where he had announced a grant for the promotion of sports. This grant was not given to Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Singh; it was given to encourage the sportspersons of Dera. 

Whenever any grant is given to any society or institute, it has to submit the utilization certificate which is examined by the government from time to time, he added.
