Punjab and Haryana High Court on Monday directed the CBI to submit the final report relating to the cases against Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda by July 31.
A division bench comprising of Justices Adarsh Kumar Goel and MMS Bedi issued the direction after the CBI sought more time on the ground that investigations were at a final stage in the cases relating to the Dera and its Chief Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.
The cases relate to the murder of a Sirsa-based journalist Ram Chander Chatterpatti and Dera manager Ranjit Singh besides other related cases.
The CBI submitted that they have to evaluate the material which they have for which they need more time.
Earlier the CBI submitted the status report to the court in a sealed cover.
