Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Furlough: Rapist Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, lodged in Sunaria jail of Rohtak, Haryana, is out of jail again. This is the eighth such time during the last 30 months of imprisonment that Ram Rahim is coming out, so how does such a big criminal of murder and rape come out of jail every time?
Is this the kindness of the government or the weakness of the legal provisions? After all, who is it that repeatedly takes Ram Rahim out of jail and why does his every release have some electoral connection? Today we will talk about this issue.
Gurmeet Ram Rahim is lodged in Sunaria jail of Haryana since 2017 in the rape and murder case. Rahim is serving a life sentence, but during the last six years of his sentence, sometimes on parole and sometimes on furlough, he keeps coming back, keeps making songs and after the end of his release period, he goes back to jail. Is.
When did Ram Rahim come out of jail?
Ram Rahim, who has been in jail since August 25, 2017, has come out of jail a total of 8 times. For the first time, he came out on one day parole on 24 October 2020 and his mother was ill at that time. Then on May 21, 2021, he was released from jail for 12 hours under police protection so that he could meet his ailing mother.
In February 2022, he was given 21 days’ release to meet his family and then he was also given Z security by the government. Ram Rahim was released on parole for 30 days in June 2022 and for 40 days in October 2022. This time when he came out for 40 days, he also released his music album.
This year also in 2023, Ram Rahim has come out in January and July. In January 2023, he came out on parole for 40 days and in July 2023, he came out of jail for 30 days. Now in November he is out of jail once again. This time also he will remain out of jail for 21 days.
Now as to how he is coming out of jail again and again, legally he has two options. The first way is parole. Parole is given to a prisoner who has spent at least one year of his sentence in jail. In most of the cases, parole is granted only once in a year, but there is a condition that the number of days the prisoner remains out on parole is not added to his sentence.
That means, if someone has been sentenced to five years and has come out on parole for 30 days, then after completion of five years of the sentence, he will have to spend 30 more days in jail. Now, since Ram Rahim has been sentenced to life imprisonment, that is, he has to remain in jail till his death, no matter how many days he remains out of jail on parole, he will have to die in jail. Which prisoner will get parole and who will not, is decided by the state government and the good conduct of the prisoner.
In such a situation, the Haryana government repeatedly approves the good conduct of Ram Rahim and also approves his parole application, due to which Ram Rahim keeps coming out.
Whereas for Ram Rahim who is coming out of jail again and again, he has another option of furlough. A prisoner gets furlough when he has spent at least 3 years of his sentence in jail. In this respect, Ram Rahim has spent three years in jail. The special thing about furlough is that this period is also added to the punishment, that is, the prisoner does not have to face additional punishment if he comes out on furlough.
What questions are being raised?
The biggest question is whether there is any election connection to Ram Rahim’s release from jail. On the surface, it appears that Ram Rahim is lodged in the jail of Haryana and after parole or furlough, he has to stay in Baghpat, UP, then what effect will it have on the elections, but if during the last parole and furlough release, if Ram Rahim If we look at the online court, the situation becomes clear.
Right now elections are in Rajasthan. The districts of Rajasthan which are adjacent to Haryana, like Sriganganagar and Hanumangarh, have significant followers of Ram Rahim’s Dera Sacha Sauda, who can influence any election. Ram Rahim himself is a resident of Sri Ganganagar, so Rajasthan is not untouched by his influence.
Therefore, the recent release of Ram Rahim is also being linked with the election battle of Rajasthan. Even before this, when there were by-elections and Panchayat elections in Adampur, Haryana, Ram Rahim was released in October 2022 and many big leaders were seen bowing down in his satsang.
Even before this, in February 2022, when Ram Rahim was released on furlough for 21 days, there were assembly elections in Punjab at that time. During this time also many Congress leaders had raised objections regarding this. Even now when there are elections in Rajasthan, Ram Rahim has been released. Questions are being raised regarding this.
