Self styled godman Rampal convicted yet again, for this reason

arrested the same day on murder and related charges

The self-styled godman Rampal as well as a few followers were convicted of murder in two separate cases.

This as per a Haryana court ruling.

The court sentenced him and 13 others to life imprisonment in a second case of homicide.

The 67-year-old and his followers were found guilty of murder, wrongful confinement of people and criminal conspiracy.

The case was registered after a woman was found dead at Rampal’s Hisar ashram on November 19, 2014.

He was arrested the same day on murder and related charges.

This comes after Rampal and 14 followers on Oct 14 were convicted in two separate cases of murder and other offences committed at his ashram in Hisar.

The two cases against Rampal and his followers were filed at Barwala police station on November 19, 2014.

Rampal’s arrest the same month had occurred amid high drama, with over 15,000 of his devotees surrounding his
sprawling 12-acre ashram in an attempt to thwart the police.

Six people – five women and an infant – were killed in the ensuing violence.
