Gurmeet Ram Rahim Gets 20 Years In Jail

Self-proclaimed Godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was on Monday sentenced to 20 years in prison. He has been sentenced for two consecutive years with a rigorous imprisonment in the two rape cases registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation in 2002, apart from a fine of Rs. 15 lakh in each case. 

The rape victims, on whose testimonies the Dera Sacha Sauda chief has been convicted, will get Rs.14 lakh each from the fine amount for their rehabilitation. 

"Having regard to the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case, as well as rival contentions, this court is of the view that if acts of convict in sexually exploiting his own female disciples and intimidating them of dire consequences, is taken note of, then such kind of person does not deserve any sympathy of the court," said the court order.
