Dera Sacha Sauda chief convicted in rape case

A CBI court in Panchkula on 25th August found Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh guilty in a rape case. He is facing up to seven years in jail. A former follower had accused Singh of repeatedly raping her inside the Dera campus near Sirsa in Haryana. 
The alleged incident took place in 1999. An FIR was registered in 2002. The Dera chief and the management of the sect have denied the allegations all throughout. Haryana and Punjab, especially, Chandigarh, are on high alert to deal with any situation on the law and order front. Several companies of the paramilitary forces have reached the twin States, with tight security arrangements being put in place. The army has taken him into protective custody and he will be transferred to a military base.
