56 acquitted in Ram Rahim Premi Case

By 23rd September 2017 0 Comments

A local court on Friday acquitted 56 persons, who were accused of damaging a Dera oof Rapist Ram Rahim and assaulting dera followers Sadha Singh and Ajaib Singh at Sunam in April 2008. The case had been registered on the duo’s complaint, almost a year after dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim had kicked up a row by allegedly imitating Sahib Guru Gobind Singh. “The court of Additional Sessions Judge Sanjeev Joshi acquitted the accused,” said defense counsel Narpal Singh Dhaliwal.

Rapist Ram Rahim was sentenced to 20 years in prison in two separate rape cases, CBI judge Justice Jagdeep Singh ruling that the victims had put the ‘accused on the pedestal of God’ and yet the ‘convict committed breach of the gravest nature by sexually assaulting blind followers’.The 20-year sentence proved to be a catalyst for the five-movie veteran’s most melodramatic performance, as he bawled for ‘maafi’ in court and refused to leave, before being dragged out.
