Ram Rahim was granted bail on Friday by a local court in Haryana’s Panchkula in a case related to the alleged forcible castration of his followers, news agency ANI reported.The agency said the self-styled spiritual guru will, however, remain in jail for raping two women disciples 15 years ago. The dera head is serving a 20-year sentence in Rohtak’s Sunaria Jail for raping the disciples.The dera head’s arrest was followed by violence by angry supporters in Panchkula — where the special Central Bureau of Investigation court held him guilty of rape— and Sirsa on August 25 last year.Former driver of dera chief Khatta Singh had told the court on May 5 that he was appointed the driver of personal vehicles of the dera head during 1996-97.On October 23, 2002, Ram Rahim had met Krishan Lal, Nirmal Singh and Kuldeep Singh in his gufa at Sirsa where they showed him the copy of the newspaper Poora Sach that had published the anonymous letter. “I was present there at that time. After going through the contents of the news, Gurmeet Ram Rahim got very angry and directed manager Krishan Lal, Nirmal Singh and Kuldeep Singh that before Ram Chander Chhatrapati (who owned Poora Sach) again publishes any other article or news in his newspaper about him or the activities of the dera, his voice be silenced forever,” Khatta Singh had told the court.He had added that Krishan Lal then left the gufa and after sometime returned with a walky-talky set and his revolver and handed over these to Nirmal Singh and Kuldeep Singh in Ram Rahim’s presence.
