Rampal and his 27 followers were charged with murder and wrongful confinement after four women and a child were found dead in his Ashram on November 19, 2014.

The quantum of punishment will be decided on October 16 and 17.

Strict security measures were taken to maintain law and order as around 2,000 police personnel have been deployed, said the officials.
