Son of slain journo who exposed Dera chief satisfied with verdict

But his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, which is also in power in Haryana, has come under heavy fire for failing to prevent the outbreak of violence and allowing the 50-year-old guru to travel in a luxury chopper to jail.

In response to Friday's clashes, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said, on Twitter, "I strongly condemn the violence & urge everyone to maintain peace". Sadhi who wrote the letter was not the only victim. "It was a big fight for us against those who were powerful and had the support of men, money and government", he said. "From arranging a special helicopter to providing an air-conditioned room and helping in using facilities meant for police officers, the Khattar government is extending all help to the lawfully disgraced Dera chief even after his conviction in such a serious crime as rape".

The high court had notified district jail at Sunaria as a place of sitting of CBI court of Additional District and Sessions Judge, Panchkula for the goal of hearing on the quantum of sentence and pronouncement of the sentence.

According to a Hindustan Times report, a special CBI court will begin hearing arguments at 2:30 pm in the district jail at Sunaria where Singh is lodged.

"The women are in hiding, they are living under constant fear".

They had also been charged with attempt to murder, he added.

"Now that he's been convicted and jailed, the threat of intimidation is reduced, we are going to appeal in the court and ask that the CBI investigate other charges of rape", Mr Bains said.

Ex-Missouri Sen. John Danforth: Trump has 'corrupted' Republican Party
When they return from their August recess, lawmakers will have only 12 days on the legislative calendar to address the debt limit. "Now comes Trump, who is exactly what Republicans are not, who is exactly what we have opposed in our 160-year history".


Almost 200,000 followers of Singh amassed in the city of Panchkula, Haryana ahead of the verdict to support the leader. Lawyers say a judgement in the case is expected in the next few months. He has more than 50 million followers worldwide.

Indian security forces have been put on high alert ahead of the sentencing of a controversial guru convicted of rape. If an accused is found to have doubtful antecedents the case against him is strengthened. The two suit cases he had brought with him to the jail on Friday were reportedly returned to his lawyers, as he would now be treated as an ordinary prisoner.

The two are often pictured together in public and on her Facebook page, she describes him as her "best friend", her "father" and her "bro". But a spokesman for the Central Bureau of Investigation, which investigated the rape allegations against Mr. Singh, later said that he would serve the sentence consecutively.

Chief ministers of the states of Punjab and Haryana have held top-level security meetings with their respective state officials to discuss the security situation.

The extent of Singh's political influence can be gauged from the fact that he was provided what is known as the "Z-plus security" - a category reserved only for the most prominent politicians in the country.

The case has also highlighted the Indian heartland's fascination with spiritual gurus, who enjoy vast political clout for their ability to mobilise millions of followers frustrated by the shortcomings of the state.

The rapist sect chief has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in each of the two cases of rape.
