  • Paramilitary forces have been deployed in good strength outside the Sunaria jail

Chandigarh, August 26, 2017: Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Dera Sacha Sauda chief is not being given any special treatment in Rohtak’s Sunaria jail, said Haryana DGP (Jails), K P Singh, today. The false reports of a special treatment given to him came after he was convicted in a rape case.

Singh also said that to monitor Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh’s activities- 4 officials have been appointed to duty near his barrack in the jail. Yesterday a special CBI court in Panchkula convicted the self-styled godman of rape.

According to PTI report, the DGP claimed,”No special treatment is being given to him. He is being treated like any other ordinary prisoner. An ordinary prisoner sleeps on the floor and he, too, is doing the same.” He added that there is no separate room for Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the room which he is sharing with other inmates doesn’t have any attendant, a bed or an AC. He is being given the same facilities as any other jail inmate as per the prison manual.

He also said that like every ordinary prisoner, he too can give the names of any five people he wishes to meet. He will be given this facility like other inmates. The jail officials will agree with the directions provided by the court after they will be informed of the duration of his sentence. He added that it’s indeed a challenge to keep a high profile prisoner secure in jail.

“That’s why inside the jail we have made arrangements to ensure that no other prisoner harms him for any reason. Outside the prison, we have already requested the local administration to secure the area and make adequate security arrangements,” Singh said, mentions PTI report.

To tighten the security measures- Paramilitary forces have been deployed in good strength outside the Sunaria jail.

Atul Kumar, Rohtak Deputy Commissioner, said today that their only motive is to make sure that Sunaria jail and Rohtak district are safe and secure. He said, “Through the media, I want to appeal to the people not to believe in rumors.”

Violence broke out in Haryana, Punjab (it extended to Delhi, Noida, and Ghaziabad) immediately after the announcement of the verdict with followers of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh going on the rampage, creating a ruckus and also clashing with security personnel. The violence took lives of at least 30 people, and 250 others were injured due to it.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

Every child responds differently to disturbing events:
What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
