Controversial Indian guru Rampal arrested
November 20 , 2014
After several days of stand-off and clashes with the inmates of an ashram, the police in India have arrested a controversial guru called Rampal, according to media reports.
The last day of deadly clashes left six people dead in the ashram in northern India’s Haryana state.
Rampal, who is wanted in connection with a murder case dating back to 2006, has evaded arrest and court orders multiple times in the past.
Thousands of devotees remained stranded for days after initial attempts by the police to raid the ashram were thwarted by armed supporters of the guru.
