Twelve years ago Rampal criticised a few parts of Arya Samaj which led to violent clashes between the two sects. His followers started firing at the villagers in Rohtak, Haryana, killing one and injuring 59 others. Following the incident, Rampal was charged with murder and was arrested in 2006.

He was given bail in 2008 but failed to appear before the court in 2014. When police reached his Satlok Ashram, his supporters formed a protective ring around him to prevent police from arresting him. This lead to a two-week standoff between the police and his over 15,000 followers. The Satlok Ashram followers had even declared that the police will have to shoot down 100,000 of his followers.

“There are very few men in this country who speak on Kabirpanthi and our Baba was a reincarnation of Kabir,” said a spokesperson of the Satlok Ashram in Karontha.

Sant Rampal was arrested after police stopped electricity and water supply to the ashram. When police forced their way into the ashram, the supporters of Rampal threw petrol bombs, stones and acid at them. Around 15,000 people were evicted from the Ashram after the arrest of Sant Rampal who later claimed that they were taken hostages by Rampal and his supporters to provide a cushion to the human ring formed around Rampal to prevent police from arresting him.

Since 2014, Rampal has been lodged in the Hisar district jail.

In 2017, Sant Rampal was acquitted in two criminal cases by a local Haryana court. Rampal was charged under Sections 147 (rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly, and 342 (wrongful confinement) of the IPC. “He has been acquitted in the two cases 426 and 427 of IPC. It’s a victory of truth,” said lawyer AP Singh. However, Rampal will remain in jail as there are other cases still pending against him.
