Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan was a superstar and he lived like one.
A recent probe into his Sirsa residence 'Tera Vas' ordered by the Punjab and Haryana High Court has brought into focus the former Dera Sacha Sauda chief's life of luxury and excesses.
He had a Z-plus security cover, a palatial house and a luxury sedan, both bulletproof.

The rape convict's three-storey fully air-conditioned house reportedly has museums, large studios, innumerable dressing areas, meeting rooms and secret tunnels that allegedly lead to the quarters of his female disciples.
According to TOI, his primary dressing room had 29 king-sized wooden racks, each 14 feet high and filled with countless designer clothes, shoes, hats, and other sartorial accessories, imported cosmetics and perfumed oils.
Though the Bhiwani police didn't find any "explosive" or "objectionable" items from Ram Rahim's house, it reeked of luxury and suspicious activities - expensive vases, gigantic TV screens, a garden on the first floor, over 60 hard drives, six projectors and walkie-talkies.
On August 28, 2017, self-styled godman Ram Rahim Singh was sentenced to 20 years in prison - 10 years each for two rapes he committed at the Dera headquarters in 2002. Since then, he is lodged in Rohtak's Sunaria jail.
The case had first come to light when an anonymous letter detailing Ram Rahim's crimes was sent to the then PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee.
