Jail authorities on Saturday called a team of doctors, including a psychiatrist to conduct a health check-up after Gurmeet Ram Rahim was not feeling well. Apart from diabetes, the imprisoned Dera Sacha Sauda chief has also reported feeling uneasy and restless to doctors who examined him.
Singh was lodged in the jail after being convicted of raping two female followers. Reportedly, he told the doctors that his problems are a type of withdrawal symptoms. “The baba is, in fact, a sex addict. He has no access to the physical pleasures in the jail which is the basis of his restlessness. He can be treated, but if delayed, it can lead to a bigger problem,” says a doctor, who was part of the team, requesting anonymity, reported India Today.
“He may not be drinking liquor now, but he regularly consumed energy drinks and sex tonics that were specially imported by him from Australia and other countries,” claims Gurdas Singh Toor, a former Dera member.
Notably, Singh once told the court that he was impotent and incapable of performing sex.
So, the demand to allow Honeypreet to stay with him in jail was to gratify physical needs? He had requested the authorities to allow him to stay with Honeypreet, his closest aide. He had told them that Honey was his physiotherapist and he needs her massage daily. Interestingly, he did not ask presence of a male attendant, his biological daughters, or even his wife.
