A cleric known as Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been arrested and is facing charges of causing grievous bodily harm after being accused of persuading his followers to cut off their private parts. According to the police investigation, About 400 of Singh’s followers cut off their private parts at a hospital run by him.
Singh has previously been questioned over the murder of an investigative journalist and has also been accused of s*xual assault, but has never been charged. Hans Raj Chauhan told police that he cut off his private parts because he thought he will be a social outcast if he refused to carry out the operation required by Singh.
Singh told his followers that only those who are castrated, will be able to find God. Singh’s estimated net worth is $40 million.
