The rape survivor whose disclosures before the CBI and trial court recently led to Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim’s conviction in two rape cases, approached the Punjab and Haryana High Court seeking life imprisonment for the self-styled godman.

The rape survivor, who was a disciple of the Dera head, sought a revision of the judgment of the Special CBI Court that has sentenced Gurmeet Ram Rahim to 20 years of imprisonment in the two rape cases. She said though the trial court had appreciated the fact that the Dera chief committed a grave breach of trust as the head of the religious organisation, it should have awarded the maximum punishment to him “as the case was not of nature where a lesser sentence would have achieved the ends of the justice”.

“Seeing the gravity of the offence, where the rape was committed upon the petitioner while she was in mental and physical custody of the accused, the ends of justice require maximum exemplary punishment to the accused,” her counsels have said in the plea, adding the High Court should also keep in mind that Gurmeet is facing the additional charges of murdering her brother.

    It is very surprising that people are blaming "Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim" for Rape Crime in India, forgetting that India is The Rape Capital of The World this Black Dot on Indian Face can Only be Erased by Severely Punishing her rulers and their puppets, for which, all poor Indians will be very happy.

      I again insist the law needs to be changed that proven rapist must get his organ chopped off and molestors must get his balls chopped off.then only people would be scared to do these crimes.start this new change with this high profile case and so the message would go loud and clear.

          He did not marry a 6-year-old child. This is not correct.
