Amidst tight security and high drama, the Dera Saccha Sauda chief self styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on Monday was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment after being found guilty of rape. The special CBI court also slapped a fine of Rs. 65, 000 on him.
The judge who flew to Rohtak in a chopper to announce the judgement, gave 10 minutes to each of the party for argument before setting out the final verdict. While the prosecution sought for life time imprisonment, the defense pitched for a lenient call claiming that the godman was a social worker, rendering services to the society.
Interestingly after being sentenced to 10 years in jail, Gurmeet Singh creates a high voltage drama outside the court premises. “I need urgent medical assistance, I am uneasy,” said Ram Rahim and sat on the floor outside the court.  The police then took him for medical examinations after which he will be taken to Rohtak jail.
Moreover, the CBI court has also issued orders that Gurmeet Singh will not be given any special treatment in the jail. He will be treated like an ordinary prisoner, will be given a jail uniform and will not be allowed to take any personal belongings.

Post the judgement, CM Manoharlal Khattar called an emergency meeting reviewing the security of the state, sources said. Chief Secretary, Home Secretary, and DGP will attend the meeting.
