The 5-year old Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh earns a meagre ₹20 a day by working for eight hours everyday inside Rohtak’s Sunaira jail. He has been confined there after he was convicted of raping his two sadhvis.
How does he earn his daily wage? He grows vegetables and prunes trees inside jail.
The DGP (jails), K.P. Singh told the press that there is a field adjoining Ram Rahim Singh’s jail cell. That is where he will grow vegetables. Whatever he produces there will be used to feed the people in jail.
When Ram Rahim was young, he used to help his father in the farms back in Rajasthan, where he was born.
The DGP also said that no special treatment is being given to the self-styled godman inside jail.
While an inmate who was out on bail had recently revealed that the prisoners inside Sunaira jail might murder the godman if he is left without security. However DP stated that only prisoners who have a history of ‘good conduct’ are kept in the same barrack as Ram Rahim.
Meanwhile, an SIT investigation have revealed that more than 600 skeletons were found buried inside the Dera premises.
