Rape and murder convict Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, chief of Sirsa-based Dera Sacha Sauda, celebrated his 52nd birthday in the high security Sunaria jail of Rohtak on Thursday. His daughters Charanpreet and Amarpreet Kaur and daughter-in-law Husanmeet Kaur were allowed to meet him in the jail compound on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan.

While sisters and daughters were permitted to meet inmates till 4.30 pm on Thursday, family members of Ram Rahim were permitted to enter the jail complex after the stipulated time due to security reasons. They wished him on his birthday and tied Rakhi to mark the occasion.

Jail officials said they did not permit sweets or Rakhis to be brought inside the complex, but provided the same to the relatives of inmates to mark the occasion.

Gurmeet had been receiving a large number of mails via post for the past 15 days from his followers from Punjab and Haryana. Every mail/postcard/letter was first scanned by jail authorities before passing it on to him. The Sirsa dera chief has been languishing in Rohtak jail for the past two years after he was convicted by a Panchkula CBI court in a rape case. He was later convicted for the murder of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati.
