In yet another sensational development, the security forces, busy carrying out search operations inside the Dera premises of the jailed rapist baba, Gurmeet Singh, on Saturday found an illegal explosive factory.
Earlier, the Haryana Police had arrested at least three Dera Sacha Sauda followers for hatching conspiracy of trying to help Gurmeet Ram Rahim escape from Panchkula during agitation. The forensic team from Roorkee is searching Dera chief Ram Rahim Singh's den, where he raped 2 women followers.
Meanwhile, efforts continued to trace the Dera chief's adopted daughter Honeypreet Insan, against whom a lookout notice was issued earlier.
No unauthorised person is being allowed to go inside the dera premises.

The dera, spread over almost 800 acres, has been divided into ten zones for the goal of sanitisation and searches, with each zone under the control of a senior officer.
A senior Punjab police officer, however, said that the dera head was initially provided one personal security officer (PSO) in 1997 but as threats to his life increased with time, especially after the 2007 incident at Bathinda where he allegedly imitated Guru Gobind Singh, more PSOs were added.
A team of five doctors was rushed to the District Jail in Sunaria on Saturday after Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh complained of ill health.
The search operation began after a court last month found the self-styled godman guilty of raping two of his followers in a case that dates back to 1999. Haryana government spokesman Satish Mishra said a case had been registered against the Dera management on this count.
