- Haryana Advocate General recommended sacking of Gurdass Singh Salwara
- Mr Salwara has relation with the Dera, state Advocate General said
- Haryana government has been accused of giving VIP treatment to Dera chief
Mr Salwara, the state's number 2 lawyer, is seen in his court robes as he rushes to help Ram Rahim with a bright orange suitcase.
Ram Rahim, the chief of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect, was outside the court in Panchkula where he had been held guilty of raping two women at his ashram in 2002.
In the video, the 50-year-old Dera chief is seen in white, standing with a woman he calls his adopted daughter, Honeypreet, who is also holding a bag.
Mr Salwara reportedly accompanied the convicted Dera chief claiming to be his relative. Ram Rahim was taken to a special jail in Rohtak.
"The Deputy Advocate General has relations with the Dera," he said.
The lawyer has embarrassed the state government as it fends off allegations that the Dera chief was given VIP treatment in jail. He was flown from Panchkula to Rohtak in a special helicopter, given an air-conditioned room and also distilled water.
His adopted daughter was allowed to accompany him along with his luggage.
