Indian Guru Whose Followers Rioted Is Sentenced for Rape

The West Bengal BJP vice president further said, "We need to see who are the people having links with the Dera of Ram Rahim; which politician, irrespective of party affiliation, should be investigated upon, to find out whether they gave support to this criminal element Ram Rahim Singh".

"The followers are still inside the compound and they could be in the numbers of 10,000 and upwards though people are leaving the compound", Vijay Kumar, the Deputy Superintendent of Police in Sirsa, told CNN. The third case is over the alleged castration of 400 Dera followers at the sect's Sirsa headquarters.

In a strongly-worded order, Judge Singh said the convict deserved the "maximum punishment" because he had "projected himself as a Godman and taken undue advantage of his position and authority", the BBC's Geeta Pandey reports from Delhi.

A day after Ram Rahim was sentenced to 20 years for raping two of his women followers, his son Jasmeet Insan was on Tuesday appointed the administrator of the sect. That the judge chose to award a 10-year jail sentence and it shows that he had decided that Ram Rahim Singh would serve his two sentences consecutively. "Our priority was to first take Ram Rahim to the chopper site".

While the prosecution sought life imprisonment for Singh, the defence put forth the argument that Singh was a social worker who should be dealt with leniently, after the judge gave each side 10 minutes to argue their case.

They attacked railway stations, petrol stations and television vans in towns across the northern states of Punjab and Haryana. Investigations are still in the case and the central agency has recorded the statements of about a dozen such victims.

The bail application of 13 dera followers arrested for rioting and damaging public property was declined by the court of chief judicial magistrate on Wednesday. The minimum sentence for rape is seven years.

The judges did not agree to the Dera counsel's submission and said, "You can't go soft when some people come armed with petrol bombs and deadly weapons to indulge in arson and lawlessness".

Reuters and other media had earlier quoted government officials and lawyers as saying that the twin sentencing would run concurrently for 10 years.

Ram Rahim's lawyers demanded that he be shifted from Rohtak jail, said sources.
