Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the spiritual head of Dera Sacha Sauda sect, was granted bail on Friday by a local court in Haryana’s Panchkula in a case related to the alleged forcible castration of his followers, news agency ANI reported.

The agency said the self-styled spiritual guru will, however, remain in jail for raping two women disciples 15 years ago. The dera head is serving a 20-year sentence in Rohtak’s Sunaria Jail for raping the disciples.

The dera head’s arrest was followed by violence by angry supporters in Panchkula — where the special Central Bureau of Investigation court held him guilty of rape— and Sirsa on August 25 last year.
