Dera Sacha Sauda chief Ram Rahim Singh’s counsel has appealed in the Punjab & Haryana High Court on Monday against verdict of Panchkula’s Special CBI Court in rape case against him. The sect chief was lodged in prison August 25 , 2017 after he was convicted by the CBI court in Panchkula on two counts of rape of female disciples in 1999.
He was later sentenced to 20 years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of over Rs 30 lakh. This matter has not been listed by the court for hearing. Ram Rahim is currently lodged in District Jail at Sunaria near Rohtak.
CBI court on Monday rejected a plea by Khatta Singh, a former driver of the sect chief, who wanted to record a fresh statement in the murder cases against the sect chief.
Earlier, Ram Rahim’s alleged daughter Honeypreet Insan was exposed brutally by her own ex-husband Vishwas Gupta who made some chilling revelations about his former wife’s tainted relationship with her so called ‘angel’ father.
Vishwas Gupta called out missing Honeypreet in the open and told media that he was well aware about his wife’s sexual relationship with the Dera Sach Sauda chief but couldn’t do much about it as he was continuously pressurised and threatened by Ram Rahim’s goons.
“She is not his daughter; they have an age difference of just 13 years. Baba use to keep her as his wife and not daughter and I have seen them getting intimate.”
Gupta also revealed that he and his family members use to respect baba a lot, the reason why he married Honeypreet on Ram Rahim’s recommendation.
He alleged that once, baba after a family meet up at his sect requested him to let Honeypreet stay at his den for a night to which Gupta couldn’t refuse because of the father-daughter relationship the duo faked.
And that is when he found out the cruel truth of the fake relationship, Guta alleged that Honeypreet and Ram Rahim were involved sexually and he was kept in disguise for long.
Later I was forced to shut and not come out in open about the incident by baba’s goons who threatened me of my life. Also the adoption process which Ram Rahim used to announce the relationship between him and Honeypreet was not legally right.
According to Vikas Gupta he was only 13 when he first met Ram Rahim and his family are Dera followers since about 50 years and there was a time in his life when Honeypreet Insan’s former life partner trusted baba more than his family.
