Dera Sacha Sauda, chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who is currently completing his 20-year jail term for raping two of his disciples, has sought a parole of 42 days, on the pretext to tender the fields.
A government official told,”We are awaiting a reply from central security and intelligence agencies and also from the Sirsa District Magistrate that whether his parole at this point in time is feasible or not”. The official said his parole could create law and order problem in the state at the time of his release and surrender later.
Ram Rahim was sentenced in August 2017 for 20 years in jail for raping two women and is currently lodged at the high-security Sunaria jail in Rohtak. As per the jail superintendent, Ram Rahim’s conduct in the jail is like a “disciplined inmate”. He could get the parole on this basis.
But no one can forget the horrors after his conviction on August 25, 2017, that had led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa, leaving 41 people dead and over 260 injured.
