Sera Sacha Sauda chief Gurrmeet Ram Rahim was on Monday sentenced to undergo 20 years imprisonment. He was sentenced to 10 years in two separate rape charges and they will run one after another and not simultaneously. As the sentence was pronounced the Godman broke down in the court and sought forgiveness with folded hands squatting on the floor.
Meanwhile according to the authorities the situation is under control in the area where the Godman has his ashram. There were no reports of violence from anywhere after the verdict was delivered but the situation is still tense. Authorities want to mortgage the Ashram and the area surrounding it to pay for the damages caused by the followers of the Godman following his arrest.
