Reportedly, the defence lawyers pleaded for leniency on grounds of the sect leader’s health, age and also called him a social worker. While the maximum punishment for rape is life imprisonment,ย ย the court decided to grant the CBI’s request for a 10-year sentence only.

A courtroom was set up in the prison premises itself where the special CBI judge pronounced the verdict and had arrived at the jail premises in a chopper from Chandigarh.

Ahead of sentencing him, a close security was given to Rohtak’s Sunaria jail. Railway stations were deserted and curfew has been imposed in Punjab’s Malota town from 1 pm to 7 pm.
