Journalist murder case: Ram Rahim to appear in court via video conferencing

The 51-year-old self-styled godman, currently serving a 20-year prison term in Rohtak's Sunaria jail for raping two of his women followers, will appear via video conferencing for the hearing in journalist Ramchandra Chhatrapati's murder case.

He has been named as the main conspirator in the case dating back to 2002.

The court also directed all other accused persons - Nirmal Singh, Kuldeep Singh and Krishan Lal - who are currently out on bail, to be present in the court.

Chhatrapati was shot at in October 2002 after his newspaper, ''Poora Sach'', published an anonymous letter narrating how women were being sexually exploited by Gurmeet Ram Rahim at the Dera headquarters in Sirsa.

The journalist later succumbed to injuries and a case was registered in 2003. The case was handed over to the CBI in 2006.
