Gurmeet Ram Rahim is a sex addict, says doctor who examined him in jail

A fortnight since Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been lodged in the Rohtak jail after being convicted of raping two female followers in a 15-year-old case, jail authorities on Saturday called a team of doctors, including a psychiatrist, to conduct a health check-up.

The self-styled godman reportedly complained of uneasiness and restlessness to the team of doctors who examined him at the Rohtak jail.

According to sources, the Dera chief is believed to have told the doctors that the health issues are a physical manifestation of some withdrawal symptoms he is suffering from.

“The baba is, in fact, a sex addict. He has no access to physical pleasures in the jail which is the cause for his restlessness. He can be treated. However, if the treatment is delayed, it can lead to a bigger problem,” said a doctor who was part of the team that examined Ram Rahim in the jail.

It, however, remains unclear if Gurmeet Ram Rahim was addicted to drugs as well. Some reports suggest that the Dera chief consumed alcohol till 1988. “He may not be drinking liquor now, but he regularly consumed energy drinks and sex tonics that were specially imported from Australia and other countries,” claimed Gurdas Singh Toor, a former Dera member.

RAM RAHIM TOLD COURT THAT HE IS IMPOTENT

Notably, Gurmeet Singh, who did not leave any stone unturned to prove himself innocent, told the special CBI court that he was impotent.

After taking over as the Dera chief in 1990, Ram Rahim publicly renounced his family and worldly desires.

When an anonymous letter accusing Ram Rahim of rape, written by one of the victims, surfaced, he told people that the girls were under pressure to give false statements. He alleged that his opponents had bribed the victims.

“He is a liar as he was never impotent. His son was a few months old when he became a Dera chief in 1990. He is accused of raping his disciples. When people demanded for his potency test, he retracted his 1990 statement and said he had physical relations with only his wife. He wanted to mislead the court. Why nobody has got his potency test done so far is another loophole,” Gurdas Singh Toor, who appeared as a witness for the CBI, told India Today.

Was the demand to allow Honeypreet to stay with him in jail to satiate physical needs?

Gurmeet Ram Rahim had requested the jail authorities to allow Honeypreet, his closest aide, to stay with him in the jail. He had reportedly threatened the jail staff when Honeypreet was asked to leave the jail complex. The Dera chief told the jail authorities that Honeypreet was his physiotherapist.

Interestingly, Gurmeet Ram Rahim did not demand the presence of either a male attendant, his biological daughters, or even his wife. His only demand was that Honeypreet be allowed to stay with him as his attendant.

When he failed to meet Honeypreet in the jail, Ram Rahim requested authorities to let him speak to her over phone.

However, Ram Rahim’s hopes were dashed when Honeypreet, slapped with a sedition case, went underground.
