Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, head of Dera Sacha Sauda, who was convicted on Friday on rape charges was moved to prison where he spent a sleepless night said prison officials.
The Haryana government made it clear that the baba was given no VVIP treatment in jail.
In fact he is being treated like any other ordinary prisoner, the government said.
Director general of police (prisons) KP Singh said on Saturday he slept on the floor in the prison barracks like ordinary prisoner.
He skipped dinner but had a glass of milk.
The dal and roti cooked in the jail kitchen was given to him.
The cell is not air-conditioned. He is kept under surveillance of two prisoners in accordance with the jail manual, Singh said.
Four officials are on duty near the Dera head’s barrack to monitor his activities, he said.
On Monday, the CBI court would read out the sentence.
