Rape convict Dera Chief Ram Rahim, who is on parole, says, "This Is First, I Should" as he slices a cake with a sword.

DERA Gurmeet Ram Rahim, the head of Sacha Sauda and a rape prisoner presently on parole for 40 days, was seen cutting a cake with a sword to celebrate his release. On social media, a video of Rahim's celebration with the enormous cake has gone viral. The Arms Act forbids the public exhibition of weapons, such as cutting a cake with a sword, therefore the Dera chief's action may land him in hot water.

The Sirsa-Dera leader, who is incarcerated in Haryana's Rohtak district's Sunaria Jail for a 20-year sentence for rape and murder, arrived at his Barnawa Ashram in Baghpat on Saturday. Rahim can be heard stating in a social media video that has gone viral, "I should cut at least five cakes because I finally had this opportunity to rejoice after five years. The first cake is this one."

The volunteers from Rahim's sect virtually launched a massive cleaning blitz on Monday throughout many cities in Haryana and a few other states. Several top Bharatiya Janata Party members from Haryana, including former minister Krishan Kumar Bedi and Rajya Sabha MP Krishan Lal Panwar, took part in the event.

In the previous 14 months, Rahim has received parole four times, including thrice in the last three months. He was granted parole for 40 days in October 2022, just in time for the Haryana panchayat election and the Adampur Assembly by-election.

A special CBI court in Panchkula found him guilty of raping two of his followers in August 2017. The CBI had started an investigation into the matter that had earlier been lodged at Police Station Sadar in Kurukshetra, according to 2003 decisions of the High Court of Punjab and Haryana.

On July 10, 2002, while working in his fields in the hamlet of Khanpur Kolian in the Haryana district of Kurukshetra, it was believed that Ranjit Singh, a local, was killed.

Following an extensive investigation, the CBI submitted a charge sheet in 2007 against six defendants, charges were made in 2008, and on October 8, 2021, the court found Rahim and four other defendants guilty of the murder of former Dera manager Ranjit Singh.
