His bail plea has been rejected by the courts many times. On April 24, his three-week parole to meet his ailing mother was dismissed for two reasons. The first reason was that parole could cause law and order problems in the state at the time of his release and surrender.
The second reason was that a report of a panel of doctors investigating her mother said that she was suffering from heart disease but was not in critical condition. Ram Rahim withdrew his parole application in June 2019 when the BJP became concerned over allegations of opposition parties favoring him.
