Court grants bail to Gurmeet Ram Rahim in castration case

Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, serving a jail term in two rape cases, was today granted bail in a case related to alleged castration of 400 of his followers.

However, Ram Rahim Singh would remain in jail as he is serving sentence for raping two of his women followers, for which he was convicted by a Panchkula court in August 2017.

Earlier, Panchkula court rejected Ram Rahim Singh's bail plea

This August, Rahim's bail application in castration case was rejected by a Panchkula court after which he had moved an application before a special CBI judge, who accepted his plea today.

The CBI had filed a charge sheet, earlier this year, against 51-year-old Ram Rahim Singh and two doctors, Pankaj Garg and MP Singh, for alleged forcible castration of 400 followers of the sect.

Singh and the two doctors allegedly castrated the men at Sirsa-based Dera telling them that it would lead to the realization of God through the Dera chief.

CBI registered the case of alleged criminal conspiracy for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means among other charges under the IPC against Singh and others in 2015.

Singh currently serves a 20-year jail term.
