The Punjab and Haryana high court on Friday asked the Hisar police to produce before it all records pertaining to the FIR against the Satlok Ashram head Rampal in an alleged human sacrifice case.

The directions came from the bench of justice M Jeyapaul as the court was dissatisfied with the report submitted by the Hisar police.

The high court was told by the government that a case under sections 302/32 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) had been registered and investigations were being carried out. The court was also told that it could also be a case of suicide. Dissatisfied over the investigations, the court directed the Haryana police to produce all records pertaining to the case by February 5, the next date of hearing.

Hari Kesh, a farmer from Narwana, had moved the high court seeking a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe into the death of his son Randhir at the ashram. He had accused Rampal and his followers of murdering his son, and carrying out human sacrifices at the ashram. According to the petitioner, on August 21, 2014, Randhir was found hanging in a bathroom at the ashram.
