Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh may have acted like a superhero in his films, but in real life, he was all tears and crying like a kid after the CBI court sentenced him to 10 years in jail. It is obvious that the conviction in the rape case and the 10 years jail today has brought the self-styled godman’s world crashing down. Just a few days back, he was playing the role of a popular spiritual guru and now he has been reduced to the status of a criminal, one who has been convicted and sentenced to 10 years in jail. Such great fall was hard for Dera chief to accept, which is why he started crying and pleading for mercy when the CBI court announced its judgment.
During the sentencing process, Gurmeet Ram Rahim pleaded with folded hands and requested the court to have some mercy. Even after the sentence was announced, Gurmeet Ram Rahim just could not believe that this could happen to him and he refused to leave the court. He was eventually dragged out of the court by security personnel. While he was being dragged out of the court, Gurmeet Ram Rahim kept shouting, “koi mujhe bacha lo”, which loosely translates into “someone save me”. Just as he was being taken inside the jail, he complained of uneasiness and threatened that the state would be responsible if anything happens to him. However, everyone sort of knew that Gurmeet Ram Rahim was just acting to be sick. He will now be given ordinary jail uniforms and will have to live like other jail inmates.
