Gurmeet Ram Rahim is a sex addict, says doctor who examined him in jail

Self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim is not feeling well. Besides diabetes, the incarcerated Dera Sacha Sauda chief has also reported feeling uneasy and restless to a team of doctors who examined him at a Rohtak jail on Saturday.

It has been almost a fortnight since Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh was lodged in the jail after being convicted of raping two female followers in a 15-year-old case. Jail authorities on Saturday called a team of doctors, including a psychiatrist, in order to conduct a health check up.

Sources say that the rapist baba is not well since he left Dera. He is believed to have told the doctors that his problems are a type of withdrawal symptoms. "The baba is in fact a sex addict. He has no access to the physical pleasures in the jail which is the basis of his restlessness. He can be treated, but if delayed, it can lead to a bigger problem," says a doctor, who was part of the team, requesting anonymity.
