Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's defence, in order to shield himself from the rape charges, had argued that the Dera chief was 'impotent since 1990' therefore him raping two sadhvis in 1999 was out of the question.
During the trial of the 15-year-old rape case against Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, his defence had claimed that the accused was medically unfit to perform sexual intercourse with anyone since 1990.
Singh's defence sought to get the charges dropped on these ground saying that since the investigation officer never examined him for virility, he should get the benefit of 'presumption of innocence'.
However, the defence's claim was devoid of any merit as one of Gurmeet's own witnesses had said that the Dera Sacha Sauda chief had two daughters. The court held the statement of the witness, who was a hostel warden at Dera, to nullify defence's claim. The warden had said that two of Singh's daughters were staying in Dera hostel at the time.
The CBI judge Jagdeep Kumar said, "This very fact speaks volumes about virility of the accused... at least two daughters have born out of loin of the accused."
Handing a sentence of 20 years imprisonment to the Dera chief, the justice termed him as “wild beast” saying that he does not deserve any sympathy.
He said that Singh has caused irreplaceable damage to the 'heritage of ancient land' disguised as a religious guru and must get a deterrent punishment. "When the convict did not even spare his own pious disciples and acted like wild beast, he does not deserve any mercy," he added.
