Dera Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Being Treated As Ordinary Prisoner, Clarifies Haryana DGP (Jails)

No special treatment is being given to Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, a rape case convict

  • No special treatment is being given to Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh
  • The false reports of a special treatment given to him came after he was convicted in a rape case
  • 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.
