During this 21-day temporary release, the 56-year-old is set to go to the Dera Sacha Sauda Ashram in Barnawa, located in Uttar Pradesh's Baghpat, according to reports. The sect's chief had made the request for temporary release, the PTI report further said.
Recently, on November 14, the Punjab and Haryana High Court dismissed the FIR filed in Jalandhar against Dera Sacha Sauda chief. The FIR pertained to allegations of religious sentiments being offended during his discourse regarding an incident involving Sant Kabir Das and Guru Ravidas.
This marks the sixth time that the Dera chief has received special permission for release from prison, since he was convicted in 2017. Singh had walked out of the Sunaria jail on a 30-day parole on July 30.
