A special CBI court in Haryana's Panchkula town on Friday convicted Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh for the murder of Sirsa-based journalist Ram Chander Chhatrapati.

Three others, who were close aides of the sect chief, were also convicted by the court.

The judgment was pronounced by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court judge Jagdeep Singh in Panchkula, adjoining Chandigarh.

Chhatrapati was shot at in October 2002 and died later.

Chhatrapati was targeted by the aides of Ram Rahim as he was upset that the journalist, who used to publish a daily in Sirsa town, was critical about the activities of Ram Rahim and his sect.
