Chandigarh, 22nd February 2022: Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s furlough has benefited any party or not; though it will be known on the day of assembly election results on March 10.

Since the release, the Dera chief is in the headlines. Gurmeet Ram Rahim was convicted in two separate cases of sexual assault and murder.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been granted furlough for three weeks. He came out of Sunaria Jail in Rohtak district of Haryana on February 7 and will return to jail by the evening of February 28. Considering the threat to the life of the Dera chief, the Haryana state government has given him Z plus category security.

Describing a threat to Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s life from Khalistan supporters and Sikh extremists, the CID Chief had also written a letter to the Commissioner of Rohtak Division in this regard. Earlier, on the basis of the police report, a clean chit was given by the District Collector of Gurugram regarding the furlough.

The Collector, in a letter to the Divisional Commissioner of Rohtak, had said that the Gurugram Police has no objection to the expulsion of Ram Rahim on furlough.

It is said that in the past, the CID Chief of Punjab had also expressed concern in a letter written to the Haryana government regarding the security of Ram Rahim. At that time there was a possibility of an attack on Ram Rahim.

Intelligence agencies had reported that the Dera chief could be attacked with a drone, so no risk should be taken in his security. Input in this regard was also given to the state government by the Central Intelligence Bureau (IB). Only after this, the government has decided to give Z plus security to Ram Rahim.

The Haryana government has been saying from the very beginning that every prisoner has the right to go on parole and furlough.

Ram Rahim has been sentenced to 10 years each by a special CBI court in the sexual assault case with two sadhvi. The two sentences will run separately. Similarly, he has been sentenced to life imprisonment in the Journalist Ramchandra Chhatrapati and Ranjit Singh Murder cases. Legal advice was taken from the Advocate General (AG) on behalf of the jail administration due to four convictions in different cases.

The Advocate General was asked whether Ram Rahim should be kept in the category of hardcore criminal or not. Then the Advocate General had said in his opinion that “In both the cases of murders, Ram Rahim Singh was found not guilty under section 302, but he was sentenced to life imprisonment under 120B. As such, he cannot be considered a hardcore criminal.”
