A video clip of Indian skipper Virat Kohli taking blessings from Dera Sacha Sauda leader Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has emerged. Along with Kohli, Indian fast bowler Ashish Nehra can also be seen in Indian practice kits in the video.
The spiritual leader had earlier claimed that he had taught Virat Kohli cricket and played a major role in the success of Indian captain. He had mentioned that he had guided Kohli in his early days when he couldn’t convert the good starts into something substantial.
As per a video published by News18, Guru Ram Rahim was quoted as saying, “I have accomplished several feats in my life. As you may have noticed, I am capable of doing so many things. I have participated in 32 different sports at the national level and have coached as well”.
“The youngsters whom I have coached are doing well for the nation today. There is boxer Vijender Singh who is winning so many medals for the country. Then there is Virat Kohli. I have this video of him with me where he came to me to learn so many things and now he one of the best in the world,” he added.
Here’s the video
Chaos in the country
Gurmeet Ram Rahim was accused of a rape and he was convicted by Haryana High Court yesterday. The judgment didn’t go well with his supporters as they took to violence to show their dissent. The states of Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and Rajasthan were majorly affected due to the riots.
There were reports of several people being killed and hundreds being injured. The supporters destroyed several vehicles and put the media vans to fire. A train in Delhi was also put to fire. The Police tried to control the situation but it was helpless due to a mass gathering.
