Controversial sect head Rampal, who was produced in the court of the additional sessions judge on Thursday, said allegations against him were baseless.

“Charges against me are baseless and devoid of facts,” Rampal told mediapersons outside a packed courtroom in the district courts at Rohtak.

Amid heavy police deployment, Rampal was produced in the court of additional sessions judge Ashwani Kumar Goel in a murder and land scam cases. Rampal’s advocate Raghubir Hooda said the court could not pursue the proceedings in the murder case as one of the 39 accused failed to turn up in the court. The court will now hear the case on May 26, he said.

He said the court recorded the statements of police officials in the land scam case against Rampal. A murder case was registered against Rampal and his followers in 2006 after a clash at his ashram at Karontha in Rohtak district where a person had died and some others were injured.
