The special CBI court at Panchkula today convicted all the four accused in the murder of Journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati in 2002.

Special CBI Judge Jagdeep Singh convicted Dera Sacha Sauda Chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, Krishan Lal, Nirmal and Kuldeep Singh under section 302 and 120 B of Indian Penal Code.

The quantum of punishment will be pronounced on January 17th

 

Jailed self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim and three others have been convicted in the murder of a journalist by a special court in Haryana.

Ram Rahim, chief of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect, was found guilty in the 2002 murder of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati.

“All the four accused have been convicted,” HPS Verma, lawyer for the Central Bureau of Investigation or CBI, told media

He will be sentenced on January 17.

Ram Rahim, 51, appeared before the court through video conferencing from Rohtak’s Sunaria jail.

He is currently serving a 20-year prison term for raping two of his followers. His conviction in August 2017 had triggered riots in Panchkula, as his followers went berserk, that left 30 dead and property worth crores vandalised.

Ram Chander Chhatrapati was shot in October 2002 outside his house after his newspaper ”Poora Sach” published an anonymous letter narrating how women were being sexually exploited by Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa.

The case was registered in 2003 and handed over to the CBI in 2006.

Ram Rahim was named the main conspirator in the case.

The three others convicted are Kuldeep Singh, Nirmal Singh and Krishan Lal, all close aides of Ram Rahim.
