Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh is now laboring as a gardener in the jail. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison on August 25 on two counts of rape.
He is earning Rs.40 per day for his work. It is quite a fall for a godman who had arrived in the court on the day of the verdict in a fleet the size of which was larger than the Indian President’s.
So while he is cooling his heels in the prison, you can revisit the world of the godman and the crimes that he committed.
His rise from relative obscurity to the frenzied fame he enjoys – which was clear with the violence on the day he was convicted – might one day find itself getting immortalized in a book.
For now, we can take a quick look into his life. Did you know that he was not even supposed to be the chief of Dera Sacha Sauda? Or that he had a gufa (cave) where he allegedly did the unmentionable things quite like Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi?
