At a cave in Ram Rahim's ashram, the word 'pitaji ki maafi' was a code word used for rape.

Gurmeet Ram Rahim, accused of raping two sadhvis in 2002, was on Friday, held guilty by the Special Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Court of Panchkula.

Two sadhvis in their deposition before the court said that maafi or pardon was a code word used for rape. The disciples would use the word among themselves to describe rapes.

    The two rape survivors had recorded their statements in 2009 and 2010 before the judges. Gufa was a personalised underground chamber, which was Gurmeet's residence.

    Another sadhvi, who used to teach at the Dera and was deposed on September 9, 2010, said, she became a follower because of her parents.

    In September 1999, when she was guarding the 'gufa', she was called inside and raped by Gurmeet.

    One of the survivors initially did not understand when female disciples asked her if she had received 'maafi by pitaji'. "This maafi became clear when I was called inside the gufa on August 28/29, 1999, and raped by Gurmeet," a survivor from Yamunanagar in Haryana revealed.
