  • Dera Chief wanted to meet his wife Guddi personally
  • FIR was registered at the city’s Jawahar Circle police station on charges of abduction and criminal conspiracy

Jaipur, Rajasthan, August 28, 2017: Kamlesh Kumar from Rajasthan lost his wife 2 years back at Dera. Now he wants justice as the rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Dera Sacha Sauda chief has been jailed.

The Rohtak court has today awarded 10 years rigorous life sentence to Ram Rahim. While the godman cries and pleads guilty before the court, activists and victims argue that the verdict was not fair enough after 15 years of wait.

His lawyer Babulal Bairwa said, “Kamlesh Kumar, a 27-year-old laborer from Jaipur, lost his wife during a family visit to the Sirsa-based Dera on March 24, 2015.”

Kumar’s wife’s name is Guddi (she was in her 20’s), she was allegedly taken aside by a volunteer as the “Dera Chief wanted to meet her personally”, lawyer Bairwa said. According to PTI report, Bairwa said, “That was the last time that Kumar saw his wife.” Kamlesh Kumar and his children searched for her, when he asked some Dera volunteers, they told him to wait for few days.

The lawyer also said that Kumar approached the Sirsa police when Guddi did not return but the police didn’t help him in any way. He had no option but to seek court’s help.

Bairwa said that as per the directions of the court in Jaipur FIR was registered at the city’s Jawahar Circle police station on charges of abduction and criminal conspiracy on May 5, 2015.

But, the investigating officer who filed a final report in the case failed to record the statement of the 50- year-old Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh. This made Kumar file a “protest petition” in the Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate (ACJM) court on February 18, 2017. Bairwa said that the hearing date which has been fixed by the court is 7 September.

Rajesh Soni, SHO of Jawahar Circle police station said that “Then SHO and investigating officer had filed a final report in the matter related to Kumar’s complaint but added that he was not aware of its content,” mentions PTI report.

Bairwa has a hope that the rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh who got jailed by a CBI court would help  Kamlesh Kumar to get justice.

Singh’s conviction in a 15- year-old rape case on 25 August 2017 saw his followers protest in various places, creating heavy chaos and damage in Haryana, Punjab, and Rajasthan. It lead to the death of 38 people till now. The protests also reached Ghaziabad, Noida, and Delhi. Jagdeep Singh, CBI court judge will fly to the Sunaria jail in Rohtak today where he would declare the duration of the jail sentence that Singh would get at 2.30 p.m.

Chandigarh, October 6, 2017 : Haryana police have issued summons to 45 members of a committee of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect to appear before it regarding the violence that erupted following the rape conviction of the Dera chief on August 25, police sources said on Friday.

Police sources said a hard disk, which reportedly contains details of transactions worth Rs 700 crore, including property and hawala deals, of the Dera has been recovered and sent for detailed examination.

The 45-member committee, which included the Dera’s headquarters campus (near Sirsa) chairman Vipassana and vice chairman P.R. Nain, is being accused of planning the violence in Panchkula and other places that left at least 38 people dead and 264 injured.

Dera Sacha Sauda followers had indulged in large-scale violence in Panchkula and Sirsa after the CBI court on August 25 convicted the sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh of rape.

The Haryana Police had last month issued a list of 43 ‘Most Wanted’ people of the sect, including top functionaries Honeypreet Insan and Aditya Insan, who are the closest aides of Ram Rahim, for their role in the violence.

Honeypreet was arrested from neighbouring Punjab on Tuesday after being fugitive for 38 days. She was booked for sedition and inciting violence.

The disgraced sect chief, who was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment, is now lodged in the District Jail in Sunaria near Rohtak. (IANS)

Rape Victims Seek Life Imprisonment for Gurmeet Ram Rahim

Chandigarh, Oct 4: Two female disciples who were raped by self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, have moved the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking life imprisonment for him as the 20-year jail term given was not enough.

In their petition filed before the High Court here, the two girls, who were raped by the godman in 1999, said the 10-year jail term to the Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim, in each case of rape was not enough for the heinous crime he committed.

The court had said the 10-year prison term will run consecutively (one after another).

Ram Rahim was sentenced to 20 years rigorous imprisonment and finef over Rs 30 lakh after being convicted by the CBI special court in Panchkula on two counts of rape of female disciples.

The victims pointed out in their petition that in rape cases where a person in a position of authority or power misuses that position to commit rape, he should be given maximum punishment – which is life imprisonment.

They pointed out that a lesser punishment would not achieve “the ends of justice”.

“Gurmeet is head of religious organisation known as Dera and had committed a grave breach of trust and he was called Pitaji (father),” the petition stated.

“Abusing his position as religious head, in whom the followers had blind faith, he committed rape,” it added.

Under new provisions introduced after the 2012 gang rape and murder of Nirbhaya in Delhi, a person in position of power and trust faces a maximum of life imprisonment for rape.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s rape conviction led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa in Haryana, leaving 38 people dead and another 264 injured. Isolated incidents of violence were also reported from Delhi and several places in Punjab. (IANS)
