Indian guru jailed for raping followers, protesting mobs kill dozens


Rampaging mobs left at least 30 people dead and more than 250 others injured in a north Indian state on Friday after a court declared a quasi-religious sect leader guilty of raping two of his followers.

Security forces patrolled the streets of the main trouble spot, the town of Panchkula, on Saturday and authorities lifted the curfew after the night passed relatively peacefully and the area was cleared of protesters, said Pradeep Kumar, a police officer.
The 50-year-old St. Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insaanis is known as the “guru in bling” for his penchant for bejeweled costumes.
The rape case was brought against him after an anonymous letter was sent to then-Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee in 2002 accusing him of repeatedly raping the sender and several other women in the sect at his ashram.
A judge asked the Central Bureau of Investigations to look into the accusations, but it took years to trace the victims, and it was not until 2007 that two women came forward and filed charges.
On Friday, mobs set fire to government buildings and attacked police and TV journalists in the town, smashing the windshields of news vans and breaking broadcast equipment.
Police initially used tear gas and water cannons and then fired bullets in the air in an attempt to control the surging mobs as they vandalized bus stations and government vehicles.
Haryana state police chief B.S. Sandhu said 28 people died, six of them due to bullet wounds, and more than 250 others were injured. More than 1,000 of the guru’s supporters were detained on charges of arson and destruction of public property, he said.
The Press Trust of India news agency said another two people were killed in the town of Sirsa, where the headquarters of the sect is located.
The special court announced the guilty verdict after hearing closing arguments in the 15-year-old case against Singh.
The guru was flown by helicopter to a jail in the nearby town of Rohtak because district officials feared they would be overrun by his supporters. His sentence will be announced Monday.
Violence also broke out elsewhere in Haryana and in the neighboring state of Punjab, as well as in the capital, New Delhi, police said. Railway stations in the towns of Malout and Balluana were torched, and two coaches of an empty train parked in New Delhi’s Anand Vihar station were set on fire.
A curfew was imposed in at least four districts of Punjab, said Amrinder Singh, the state’s chief minister.
A spokesman for the guru’s sect, Dera Sacha Sauda, urged his supporters to remain calm.
“I just want to request everyone to maintain peace at the moment,” said Dilawar Insan. “We will explore what legal options are available to us.”
The sect claims to have about 50 million followers and campaigns for vegetarianism and against drug addiction. It has also taken up social causes such as organizing the weddings of poor couples. Such sects have huge followings in India. It is not unusual for their leaders to have small, heavily armed private militias protecting them.
Clashes in 2007 between Dera Sacha Sauda followers and members of the Sikh faith left at least three people dead in north India.
In 2014, six people were killed when followers of another religious leader, guru Rampal, fought pitched battles with police who were attempting to arrest him after he repeatedly failed to appear in court in connection with a murder trial.
In a televised appeal Thursday, Ram Rahim Singh asked his supporters not to resort to violence, but some said they would not tolerate a verdict that went against their leader.
“I consider guru-ji to be only next to God,” farmer Malkit Singh said as he squatted on the ground in a park, saying Ram Rahim Singh had cured him of a decadelong addiction to drugs.
“There is a God above,” he said. “Our guru-ji follows the path of truth.”
