Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was Friday found guilty of raping two ‘sadhvis’ (female followers) in 2002.
The charges against Gurmeet Ram Rahim date back to 2002, when a Dera sadhvi wrote an anonymous letter to then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee saying she was raped by the Dera chief. In the letter, the sadhvi also accused Gurmeet Ram Rahim of raping several other female followers inside the sprawling Dera campus on the outskirts of Sirsa in the state of Haryana.
Following the court judgement on Friday, there has been wide scale violence in Punjab and its neighbouring states. Today, Ram Rahim’s quantum of punishment will be decided by the court in Rohtak.
Ahead of that, singer Mika took to Twitter to convey his best wishes for Baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh leaving everyone in shock.
He wrote, “My best wishes to @Gurmeetramrahim bhaaji .. I hope the court will make the right decision. The greatest thing is he went on time?..”
