Dera Sacha Sauda chief granted one-month parole, leaves Rohtak jail
He was convicted by a special CBI court in Panchkula in August 2017
Jailed Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been granted a month-long parole, a senior official said on Friday.
Singh was lodged in a jail in Haryana's Rohtak after his 2017 conviction in rape cases. "He has been granted one-month parole and he came out of the prison on Friday," a senior police official from Rohtak jail said.
Earlier in February, the Dera chief was granted three week's furlough.
The sect chief is serving a 20-year jail term for raping two women disciples at his ashram in Sirsa, where the dera is headquartered.
He was convicted by a special CBI court in Panchkula in August 2017.
The sect chief was lodged in Rohtak's Sunaria jail. Sources said the Dera chief was likely to go to Dera Sacha Sauda Ashram, Barnawa in Uttar Pradesh's Bhagpat.
