Dera Sacha Sauda chief and rape convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim walked out of the Sunaria jail in Haryana’s Rohtak district on Tuesday after he was granted a 21-day furlough.

It is his third temporary release from jail in this year.

The 56-year-old Dera chief came out of the jail at around 2 pm, official sources said.

During his temporary release period, Ram Rahim will go to the Dera Sacha Sauda Ashram in Barnawa in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat.

The Sirsa-headquartered sect’s chief had applied for temporary release for availing furlough. He is serving a 20-year jail term for raping two of his disciples.

Previously, the Dera chief had walked out of the Sunaria jail on a 30-day parole on July 30.

Earlier, the Dera chief had been granted a 40-day parole in January. In October last year too, he was granted a 40-day parole.

Prior to his October parole, he had come out of the prison on a month-long parole in June last year. Besides, he was granted a three weeks’ furlough from February 7, 2022.

In 2021, the Dera chief, along with four others, was also convicted for hatching a conspiracy to kill Ranjit Singh, a Dera manager.

The Dera chief and three others were convicted in 2019 for the murder of a journalist more than 16 years ago.
