The statements of the two ‘sadhvis’ before CBI judges have revealed the horrifying tale of self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who was convicted by the court in rape case on Friday.
If reports are to be believed, the victims stated sequences of events and had recounted the stories how the Dera chief used to rape them and other women of the outfit inside his ‘gufa’ .
“Only female disciples were deployed to guard Ram Rahim’s underground living quarters. ‘Maafi’ (Pardon) was the code word used among disciples to describe rapes.
“I did not understand when other female disciples used to ask me if I had been ‘granted maafi by pitaji’ until I was raped by Gurmeet on August 28/29 1999, inside the gufa,” media quoted Sadhvi’s statement.
A sadhvi from Sirsa, who was renamed as Nazam by Dera chief said that she was called inside the ‘gufa’ and raped by Ram Rahim Singh.
