In yet another jolt to the jailed self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim, he has once again been convicted by the court for murder of a journalist.
The conviction was pronounced by a special court in Haryana.
Ram Rahim, chief of the Dera Sacha Sauda sect, was found guilty in the 2002 murder of journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati.
The CBI lawyer said that Ram Rahim apart from three others have been convicted in the case.
The verdict was pronounced in Panchkula and adequate security had been arranged ahead of the verdict.
He will be sentenced on January 17.
Ram Rahim, 51, appeared before the court through video conferencing from Rohtak’s Sunaria jail.
