The court’s verdict of the former Dera Sacha Sauda head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has arrived. The anticipation is such that paramilitary forces stayed put through the night in Panchkula and Sirsa. Government offices in Panchkula and Chandigarh will be closed today along with schools and colleges. His trial is for the sexual exploitation of two female followers in 2002 and has been convicted guilty.


Let us rewind to the circumstances that led to this trail.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh took over the Dera Sacha Sauda, a non-profit social welfare organization, in 1990 at the age of 23. Since then, Dera Sacha Sauda followers and assets rose at an exponential rate in last 20 years.

In 2002, PM Vajpayee got anonymous letter alleging sexual harassment of sadhvis inside the Sirsa dera. Thus, HC referred the matter to CBI, who eventually filed a chargesheet against him.

In 2007, he got anticipatory bail. In 2008 and 2009, two more Sadvi’s accuse him of rape.

Here are some of the recent turn of events that has happened right now:

(1) The government of Haryana has cut off mobile internet services and asked for the army to be ready to intervene if required.

(2) An estimated 1.5 lakh Dera followers including men, women and children have gathered in Panchkula.


(3) Around five lakh followers have arrived in Sirsa.


(4) 15,000 paramilitary troops in addition to the police guarding Panchkula!


(5) Gurugram will not be affected by the internet services being cut-off.

DC Gurugram has already communicated to the telecom operators to maintain normal data internet services.
