"There is definite averment that castration was at the instance of the 5th respondent (Gurmeet Ram Rahim) and he had undergone mutilation of the testicles on a practice of deception and promise by the 5th respondent that such an act would pave (the) way for realisation of God".

Dera Sacha Sauda chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has challenged the Special CBI court's verdict in the rape cases in Punjab and Haryana High Court demanding it to be quashed. This was revealed to the cops by Honeypreet's personal assistant Rakesh Kumar, a newspaper report stated.

A police officer in Panchkula, Haryana said they found out about the condition of the two arrestees during primary investigation.

Honeypreet, whose real name is Priyanka Taneja, was arrested by the Haryana Police on October 3 in connection with the deadly violence that had claimed 35 lives.

Carolina Panthers report card: Grades reflect production, always a victor in Detroit
Matthew Stafford had played consistently well this season and I like the way the Lions defense is creating turnovers. GROUND GAINS: Detroit is slowly improving its running game, going from among the NFL's worst to relatively average.

On August 28, a CBI court awarded 20-year-imprisonment to Ram Rahim Singh for the rape and criminal intimidation of two "Sadhvis" (women followers) who were residing in a hostel located on the premises of the Dera back in 1999. He had alleged that it was Honeypreet who disbursed Rs 1.25 crore for the supporters, ahead of the judgement.

While accusing Honeypreet and Gurmeet of having illicit relations, Gupta said their father-daughter relationship was a sham to fool followers and others.

He claimed that the police had figured out Honeypreet's hideouts from August 25 - after she left Rohtak jail where Ram Rahim is lodged - to September 2. The court also slapped a fine of Rs 30 lakh on Ram Rahim and asked him to pay it to the rape survivors. Thirty-six people were killed and more than 250 injured in violence in Panchkula and Sirsa. Isolated incidents of violence were also reported from Delhi and several places in Punjab.
