A woman whom the Dera website describes as his daughter (not real daughter), was allowed to accompany him along with bags and suitcases.
“From arranging a special helicopter to providing an air-conditioned room and helping in using facilities meant for police officers, the Khattar government is extending all help to the lawfully disgraced Dera chief even after his conviction in such a serious crime as rape. This is appalling,” a police source, who saw some of these things happen on Friday and Saturday, told news agency IANS.
Ram Rahim has been moved to a prison in Haryana’s Rohtak after he was found guilty of raping two women followers in 2002.
On Friday afternoon, he made a dramatic entry into court, driving 250 kilometres from his headquarters in Sirsa, in a bulletproof car, accompanied by a convoy of 200 cars.
After his landing in Rohtak, he was taken to a police guest house that served as a makeshift prison. Later in the evening, he was moved to a prison.
On Friday, at least 31 people were killed and more than 250 were injured in violence in Panchkula and Sirsa after a special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court convicted Ram Rahim Singh in connection with his alleged involvement in a 2002 rape case.
