In 1986 KartaPurkh filed a lawsuit

that was known of but denied by the community.

KartaPurkh (the spiritual name Bhajan gave her, she prefers her birth name not to be mentioned) was lured into the community at the age of 14 by her sister Guru Amrit Kaur, one of the secretaries of Yogi Bhajan.

Her horrific story can be read from the notes from the court case she filed in 1986. Below you can find an extract of the paragraphs relating to the sexual abuse. It includes her being raped by YB while her sister was holding her down.

In 1985 KartaPurkh succeeded in escaping from the 3HO community and started a court case against YB, his organisations and a number of its leaders including her sister.

Her sister Guru Amrit Kaur has been the de facto leader of 3HO since Yogi Bhajan's death, gaining the title Sardarni Sikdar Sahiba Sardarni Guru Amrit Kaur. From SSSC website: "In 2004, at the Siri Singh Sahib’s passing he bestowed upon her the privilege to serve the Sangat as a spiritual guide to bring all to the feet of the Guru."

When the revelations came out, Guru Amrit Kaur took a leave of absense and has not made any comments on what has been discovered.

In his interview with GuruNischan°, Tej Steiner explains how KartaPurkh's story landed with him.

In 1986, Dr Ron Alexander was asked by Pamela and KartaPurkh's attorneys to give a psychological evaluation of them.

Pamela Dyson filed a lawsuit at the same time as KartaPurkh did in 1986.
