Even as 15 days have passed since he was brought in Rohtak’s Sunaria jail, rape convict Dera chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim has had no visitors so far from his family.
The district administration on Tuesday said none of his family members, a list of which was sent by the jail administration to police for verification, has come forward to meet the jailed baba so far.
The list of 10 members given by Ram Rahim included his son Jasmit and his ‘adopted’ daughter Honeypreet, who has been hiding ever since Ram Rahim’s conviction as the Haryana Police are hunting for her.
Sources in the jail said the dera chief, who is under depression, complained of ill health twice in the past one week. A team of doctors from Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS) was sent to the jail to examine him.
Sources said the government has written to the PGIMS to keep a separate room for him on standby in view of safety concerns. Security forces also conducted a mock drill at the hospital recently.
There were also media reports quoting anonymous psychiatrists that Ram Rahim is a ‘sex addict’ and he is now showing withdrawal symptoms.
However, doctors in the psychiatry department at the PGIMS denied that any of their doctors went to examine Ram Rahim in the jail.
