Punjab Tribune Bureau | February 22, 2022 12:00 PM

CHANDIGARH: Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been provided Z+ category security on his release from jail on parole. His life is in danger from pro-Khalistan activists.

Earlier this month he was released on parole. Now the Haryana government's decision to give them top-level security cover has come.

Ram Rahim has a huge following in Punjab that underwent polling on February 20. Now, he has been advised to stay in the Gurugram farmhouse until his furlough gets over considering the threat to his life. 

Ram Rahim was also convicted for the murder of a journalist in 2019 along with three others. He is also accused in multiple other cases including the murder of the former manager of Dera Sacha Sauda, who circulated an anonymous letter revealing Ram Rahim’s sexual exploitation in the ashram.

He was released from Rohtak's Sunaria jail on February 7 on a 21-day leave. In this case, the special CBI court of Panchkula had convicted Ram Rahim in 2017.

Ram Rahim came from jail in a convoy of luxury cars

After getting parole, Ram Rahim reached Gurugram from Rohtak Jail in a luxury car under tight security at 5 pm. Police vehicles were also included in the convoy of six vehicles. The car in which Ram Rahim was traveling, had black curtains on the mirrors. The car stopped directly in the parking lot inside the ashram. He was brought down from the car only after the gate of the ashram was closed. Police sources had told that the followers had welcomed Ram Rahim by showering flowers. During this, there was talk of cutting the cake too.

People in the Z-Plus category get 10 for mobile security and two for residence security. Z-plus level security is provided by National Security Guard commandos.
