Chandigarh, January 19

Justice Ranjit Singh (retd), who headed the judicial commission into various cases of sacrilege, on Wednesday squarely blamed the Dera followers for conspiring the sacrilege cases and carrying out the incidents.

He also blamed the then DGP Sumedh Singh Saini and then CM Parkash Singh Badal for police firing on the protesters.

He made these comments on the release of his book, ‘The Sacrilege’, based on his investigation into the cases.

He also blamed the SAD-BJP and Congress governments for "inaction" on his report.

About the timing of the release of the book close to the elections, he said he had no political aim. "It is just a coincidence that the book has been released now. We wanted to release it earlier but there were technical issues."

Justice Ranjit Singh said he had held police and politicians responsible on the basis of his inferences and conclusions based on material evidence.
