A day after Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was awarded 20 years imprisonment in a rape case, it is time for yet anothe godman, Sant Rampal, to face the verdict in two criminal cases against him.
Rampal, head of the Barwala based Satlok Ashram near Hisar, is expected to be at a special court on Tuesday, to hear the verdict of cases lodged against him in November 2014.
Many of his followers have gathered in Hisar to await the outcome.
On November 18, 2014, a case was registered against Rampal and his followers under IPC sections 186 (Obstructing public servant in discharge of his public function), 332 (Voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) and 353 (Assault or use of criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging his duty).
This self-styled godman had a rags to riches story, who worked as a junior engineer in the Haryana irrigation department before becoming Sant Rampal.
The controversial godman was arrested by police in November 2014.
Subsequently, sedition charge was slapped on him and some of his followers.
