Earlier, a court had extended the bail of Baba Gurmit till October 15 in two cases of murder and one count of rape.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court had directed him to appear before the trial court for grant of regular bail.

The dera chief was granted interim bail on surety of three bonds of Rupees five lakh each.

He was also asked to approach the district and sessions court in Ambala to seek regular bail.

The CBI had filed a chargesheet on July 31, accusing him of murdering sect manager, Ranjit Singh, and a Sirsa-based journalist, Ram Chander Chatterpatti, and for the alleged rape of a Sadhavi.

Two accused, Inder Sain and Avtar Singh were discharged in the Chatterpatti murder case on a defence plea that the duo had not been named as accused by the CBI in the chargesheet.

Three others — Kishan Lal, Kuldip Singh and Nirmal Singh have been facing charges of conspiracy and murder.

Singh has been charged under Section 120-B (Conspiracy) in connection with the case relating to the murder of Ranjit Singh.

The other accused are Kishan Lal, Jasbir Singh, Sabdil, Avtar Singh and Inder Singh, booked under Section 302 (Murder).

Singh is the lone accused under Section 376 (Rape) in connection with the alleged rape of a Sadhavi.

Ram Raheem Singh name was in news after he reportedly wore the ensemble of Sikhs’ Tenth Guru.

A case was also registered against him following a complaint by a Bathinda resident, who accused Singh of hurting the religious sentiments of Sikhs by donning the attire of the tenth Sikh guru, Guru Gobind Singh. (ANI)
