Without authorization, Gurmeet Ram Rahim cannot be granted parole

NewsWithout authorization, Gurmeet Ram Rahim cannot be granted parole


The Haryana government was informed by the Punjab and Haryana High Court that Gurmeet Ram Rahim, a rape convict, cannot be released from prison without the government’s consent. Two months after leaving Sunaria jail in Rohtak with a 21-day furlough, the Dera Sacha Sauda chief was granted a 50-day parole last month.

Singh had visited the Dera Sacha Sauda Ashram in Barnawa, Uttar Prdesh’s Baghpat, during his period of temporary release. Singh has been imprisoned for 20 years after assaulting two of his followers.

The Dera chief was given a 40-day parole in January of last year, and he was released from the Sunaria jail on a 30-day parole on July 30 of the same year. Additionally, he was given a 40-day

parole in October 2022. Prior to that, in June 2022, he had been released from prison for a month-long parole. In addition, on February 7, 2022, a three-week furlough was granted to him. The Dera leader and four other people were guilty of planning to assassinate Dera manager Ranjit Singh in 2021.

In 2019, the Dera chief and all three other people were found guilty of killing a journalist over sixteen years prior.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the leader of Dera Sacha Sauda, was given a 50-day parole last month while he is serving a 20-year sentence in Rohtak’s Sunaria jail for raping two disciples. This occurs just 29 days after he returned uninvited to Sunaria Prison in Rohtak following a furlough of 21 days. 

He was on a 21-day furlough when he left the jail in Rohtak, Haryana, on November 21, 2023. Last month, he strolled back to the prison. Twenty nine days in prison later, he got another release. 

He was released from prison three times in 2023.

He stayed at the Dera Sacha Sauda Ashram in Barnawa, Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh, in November of 2023. Harjinder Singh Dhami, the president of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, had voiced his strong opposition to the Haryana government’s decision to give the Dera chief a furlough, claiming that he was serving a sentence for horrible crimes like rape and murder. Dhani had claimed that it was encouraging a culture of distrust within the Sikh community. He had claimed that although the Dera chief was frequently given temporary releases from prison, governments were not paying attention to the Sikh community’s calls for the release of Sikh prisoners, or “Bandi Singhs.”
