Controversial preacher Gurmeet Ram Rahim is now in jail on a rape conviction, and his assets have been seized by law enforcement agencies. One of his most expensive cars, a Porsche Cayenne GTS, is now gathering dust at Sangrur’s Sadar police station. Now, this luxury SUV, which is worth about 1.42 crores, has become a tourist attraction. Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s devotees are said to be thronging the police station for a ‘darshan of Pitaji’s’ car. This is giving cops at the police station a tough time.
A policemen attached to the Sadar police station said this,
In my life, I have never seen such a costly vehicle in the police station before. Since all its parts are very costly and there are many visitors in the police station daily, we have to be extra vigilant. Dera followers keep requesting that they want darshan of their Pitaji’s vehicle. It creates problems.
The Cayenne GTS is a high-performance, 5 seater SUV that Porsche sells in India. The SUV is powered by a 3.6 liter twin turbocharged petrol engine that outputs 434 Bhp of peak power at 6,000 rpm and 600 Nm of peak torque at 1,600 rpm. This engine is paired to an 8 speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel drive system is standard. This engine and driveline combination gives the Cayenne GTS sportscar-beating performance.
A person from Sirsa called Honey Goyal has also filed an application in court, claiming ownership of the Cayenne GTS. However, the court has sought original documents of the car from him, which haven’t been furnished yet. Until he furnishes the documents, the cops will not release the car, and until then will have to protect it from miscreants and also Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s devotees.
SHO of the police station, Devinder Singh, explains the difficulty in guarding the high-end Porsche Cayenne GTS with the following statements,
Both its cost and religious sentiments attached with it are very high. Apart from protecting it from thieves, we have to be extra cautious to protect it from miscreants who want to disrupt peace by creating unnecessary religious controversies. We have sought the original documents from Honey and would hand over the car to him if he produces the documents in the court.
