In this case, Gurmeet Ram Rahim was presented in court through video conference. There were four accused in this case. The court has convicted everyone. On January 17, the sentence will be announced. Ram Rahim was made accused in the 2002 case as the main conspirator. Chatrapati's newspaper ‘Poora Sach’ published a letter in which it was reported that how Ram Rahim is doing sexual harassment of women in the Dera headquarters. After this, Chattrapati was shot in October 2002. The journalist was later died due to severe injuries and in 2003 the case was registered. This case was handed over to the CBI in 2006.

Prior to the pronouncement of the verdict, security was increased in many parts of Haryana and Punjab. Extensive arrangements have been made for security in Haryana, especially Panchkula, Sirsa (Dera headquarters) and Rohtak districts. Several companies of state armed police, anti-riot police and police force were deployed to maintain law and order. A police official said that security has been tightened outside the Panchkula court premises. The Haryana Police imposed a block on the way to the court.

The district police chiefs have been instructed that people should not be allowed to collect unnecessarily and additional vigilance should be taken. Police said that additional police force has been deployed near the head of Dera Sacha Sauda headquarters in Sirsa in Haryana.
