CBI files chargesheet against Ram Rahim in castration case

February 01, 2018 17:59 IST

The Central Bureau of Investigation on Thursday filed a chargesheet against rape convict and Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and two doctors for allegedly forcibly castrating 400 followers of the sect, officials said.

Singh, who is serving a 20-year jail term after being convicted in two rape cases, has been charged along with doctors Pankaj Garg and M P Singh.

 

They allegedly castrated the men at the Sirsa-based dera, officials said.

The chargesheet has been filed in a special court in Panchkula.

The agency had registered the case of alleged criminal conspiracy for voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means among other charges under the Indian Penal Code against Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and others in 2015.

The case relating to the alleged castration of 400 devotees was registered on the orders of the Punjab and Haryana high court.
