Sant Rampal Acquitted by Court in Two Criminal Cases

A big relief for the self-styled Godman Sant Rampal as the Hisar court acquitted him in two criminal cases on Tuesday in which both the eyewitnesses and the complainant turned hostile. Speaking to the reporters outside Hisar Central Jail, where a special court was set up to announce the verdict on the self-styled Godman, Rampal’s lawyer A P Singh said, “Sant Rampal has been acquitted in the two criminal cases. He has been acquitted in the two cases (426 and 427). It’s a victory of truth.”

As good news for the Sant Rampal, the self-styled Godman is cleared of two charges – hindering government servants from doing their duty and illegal confinement of people. The self-styled Godman Sant Rampal, however, will still remain in jail as he faces charges in no less than eight cases. There’s one case back in 2005 where a villager was shot dead in Hisar. “Besides these two FIRs, there are few more criminal cases yet pending against him that includes heinous crimes. Thus, he shall continue to stay in jail,” the public prosecutor Rajesh Chaudhary said. The self-styled Godman is at present lodged in Hisar Central Jail. The verdict is announced the jail premises as the Judicial Magistrate First Class Mukesh Kumar held the court in the jail premises.

To take care of the law and order situation in Hisar, the state police had hiked up security in and around Hisar. In November 2014, the 57-year old Godman was arrested after he made many attempts to run away from the arrest. The security forces enclosed the self-styled Godman Sant Rampal’s Satlok Ashram in Hisar causing extensive turbulence. Following the 57-year old Godman’s ignorance to appear in court 43 times, the police were ordered to arrest him. As Rampal was not surrendering to the authorities peacefully, the authorities closed the basic facilities like water and power supply to the Ashram. This confrontation continued for the next two weeks. Two cases were registered against the 57-year old Godman and 11 others in the link with the violence that killed five women and a baby.

Explosion near US embassy in central Kabul

Today, a suicide bomber blast himself up on a busy street near the US embassy in central Kabul in which four people were killed and several others were injured, the officials said.

In a series of deadly attacks that hit the Afghan capital, it was the latest that comes three months after a massive truck bomb ripped in the same area and killed about 150 people.

A spokesman for Afghanistan interior ministry, Najib Danish told AFP that the today’s explosion happened outside a private bank in the central market.

The blast happened  on Tuesday early in the morning  when many officials were expected to be collecting their salaries ahead of Eid holiday this week.

The private institution Kabul Bank  which is hit by the blast pays the salaries of  all the security forces personnel and government employees.

The broadcast images on Afghan television showed exterior mangled of the bank.

Waheed Majroh, the Health ministry spokesman said,” 1 dead body and 8 wounded people had been brought to Kabul hospitals so far.”

The blast occurred in a street which is lined with shops and  the banks leading to Massoud Square near Kabul’s diplomatic area and the United States embassy.

There was no responsibility but the Taliban insurgents are at the peak of their summer fighting season and have launched many deadly assaults.

Since, the NATO forces ended up their more than a decade long mission in Afghanistan at the end of 2014. The police have struggled to the resurgent the Taliban while facing the menace of the Islamic State.

Deadly assaults

It was the latest explosion to rock the Afghan capital and comes a week after United States President Donald Trump committed American soldiers to Afghanistan.

The blast which targeted the foreign forces, on 3rd May near the US embassy and NATO headquarters and killed at least 8 people and 28 were  wounded during morning hour.

Later this month, a massive truck bomb tore through Kabul diplomatic quarter, the presidential palace and foreign embassies host in which about 150  people were killed and  around 400 people were wounded and most of them are civilians.

Around seven people were killed after suicide bombers attacked the funeral of a protester on 3rd June who was killed  during a demonstration against insecurity in Kabul.

After Trump paved for more US forces to be sent to Afghanistan. The Taliban ruled the war torn country from 1996 to 2001 and vowed to turn it into a graveyard  foreign forces.

The Afghan authorities has welcomed Trump decision and the Pakistan officials batted away the claims from the US president that Islamabad continued to harbour the militant sanctuaries.

The Pakistan has postponed a visit by a US diplomat who had been arrived on Monday. For South and Central Asian Alice Wells the delegations led by the Assistant Secretary of State was set to be the first major visit, since Trump comments.

According to a statement, later the Pakistan announced the talks with China special envoy on Afghan affairs where the Chinese official lauded the Pakistan contribution and  the sacrifices made in the fight against terrorism.

Also, the IS insurgents have  carried out a number of deadly attacks in Kabul and they claimed a suicide bomb and gun attack on a Shiite mosque in which  28 worshippers were killed.

Earlier this month, they killed two in an attack on the Iraq embassy.

Dera Chief Baba Ram Rahim Sentenced to 10 Years Jail term for Rape Case

The Dera Sacha Sauda chief Baba Ram Rahim is sentenced to 10 years in prison by a special CBI court today. For the precautionary measure, the sentencing was held in Sunaria jail of Rohtak. A set-up (special court) like the court was prepared in the jail premises to avoid a repeat of the deadly violence that erupted following the announcement of the conviction of the Dera head on Friday in a rape case.

The Judge Jagdeep Singh along with the court staff came to the Rohtak from Chandigarh by helicopter in the morning. Prior to the hearing, Rohtak was put on a high alert. The deputy commissioner of Rohtak, Atul Kumar, cleared earlier that the shoot at sight orders has been issued. He also said that three-tier security ring has been arranged at around Sunaria district jail. “We will not allow anyone to create any sort of trouble in Rohtak. Anyone breaking law or indulging in acts of violence or arson will himself be responsible for his fate. Anyone creating trouble will be given a warning first and if he still pays no heed, then he will have to face the bullet,” he added.

According to the reports flashing on the TV news channels, Singh broke down in court and begged for fewer sentence before the judge announced his sentence. The ANI reported that the followers of Dera head set ablaze two cars in Phoolka area of Haryana’s Sirsa while the sentence verdict session was ongoing. The CBI asked for the lifetime prison for the Dera head, while his lawyer requested for leniency because of his social work record. The Dera head Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was convicted of raping two female followers on August 25 by the special CBI trial court. A case was filed in 2002 against the Dera head when an anonymous letter written by the complainant reached the Punjab and Haryana High Court and later to the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The letter by the complainant said, “One night, at about 10 pm, I was called by Guru Maharaj to his gufa (den). I found him … with a revolver lying next to his pillow. He told me that as I, a sadhvi, had dedicated my mind and body to the ‘seva‘of the guru, he, the guru, wanted to claim his due. When I protested, he told me that I should have no doubt he indeed was God. ‘Didn’t Lord Krishna make love to his gopis every night? Yet people regard him as a god,’ he told me. When I was still not convinced, he told me he could shoot me here and now and no one would raise a finger, not even my parents. ‘The chief ministers of Punjab and Haryana and many central ministers come and touch my feet. I can get your family members removed from their jobs and get them killed if you protest,’ he told me.”

“There are about 40 unmarried women between 35-40 years of age in the ashram regarded as devis. We are not allowed to even look at another man, have to keep our heads covered with a white dupatta … But our life here is worse than that of prostitutes. Even if our parents call we are not allowed to talk to them without the guru’s permission. If any sadhvi goes back home and tells her family members about what has happened to her, goondas from the deras threaten the family members with death threats, forcing them to keep quiet. If you get the sadhvis of the dera medically examined you will learn that they are not sadhvis..,” the letter added.

On the other hand, the Dera head is also accused of the murder of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati, who published bluntly about the rape accusations against Singh in his newspaper Poora Sachh. That murder case is being heard in the CBI court in Panchkula, the same court that found Singh guilty of rape.
