CBI court to pronounce sentence to Gurmeet Ram Rahim in journalist murder case tomorrow

New Delhi | The Special CBI court on Thursday will pronounce the quantum of sentence to Dera Sacha Saudha chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh in the murder case of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati.

Singh who is currently lodged in Rohtak’s Sunaria Jail was convicted in the murder case along with 3 other. The Judge will pronounce the judgement via video conferencing.

Ram Rahim was convicted of ordering his followers to kill Ram Chander Chhatrapati after his newspaper published an anonymous letter narrating how Singh sexually harassed women at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa. The Sirsa based journalist was shot outside his residence in October 2002. The case against Ram Rahim and his followers was registered in 2003 and was later handed over to CBI in 2006. Earlier on Tuesday, the special CBI court had accepted the state governments plea allowing Ram Rahim to appear before the court via video conferencing.

Rah Rahim is currently serving 20 years prison for raping two of his followers in the Rohtak’s Sunaria jail. The Dera chief is also accused in the murder case of former Dera manager Ranjit Singh.
