Rahul, a prisoner in the jail where the self-styled godman is serving 20 years for raping two of his female followers, has said that he has never seen Ram Rahim inside the prison premises. "None of us have ever seen him, we are just told he is lodged here," he said, adding that several restrictions have been imposed on inmates as well. "Prisoners cannot move freely since Ram Rahim was brought in. Since then, there are a lot of restrictions that have been imposed on us."

Rahul also hinted that Ram Rahim may be getting several undue privileges because he has never seen him work like other prisoners do. "We have never seen him work either. I don’t think he does any jail work," he said, adding that visitors coming to meet him stay for two hours even though other visitors are only allowed access for 20 minutes.

In August, Ram Rahim was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in each of two cases of rape that date back to 2002. Both sentences will run consecutively. There was widespread violence from followers of his Dera Sacha Sauda and the Haryana government was accused of not doing enough to prevent absolute chaos.
