Ram Rahim Singh has been found guilty of raping two women followers in 2002. He has been taken to jail and will be sentenced on Monday. Ram Rahim arrived in a 200-car cavalcade this afternoon in the town of Panchkula where a court had ordered him present for its ruling. Major towns in Punjab and Haryana are in lockdown – Panchkula, Chandigarh which is just 11 kms away, and Sirsa.

Followers wept, some fainted, as they waited for the verdict, which has created a huge security nightmare in multiple towns including Panchkula. Ram Rahim had said he is not guilty of the charges against him.Panchkula has been overwhelmed by one lakh followers of Ram Rahim who have congregated in the small town. The army is on standby at the request of Haryana Chief Minister ML Khattar.
