Major Cases• A case had been registered against Rampal under the charge of murder when a boy named, Sonu was killed in the 2006 clashes.
• Rampal was booked under the charges of sedition, keeping illegal arms, motivating suicide mongers for not letting the police arrest him, despite the non-bailable warrant.
ControversyIn 2006, he made a derogatory remark on Swami Dayanand's book, Satyarth Prakash, which the followers of Arya Samaj did not tolerate. The statement made both the sects come face to face. A man named Sonu was killed in the clashes, and around 60 others were injured, following which, the charges of murder and attempt to murder were slapped against Rampal. The SDM took Rampal's Ashram in Karontha under his influence. 25 people, including Rampal, were arrested. He had to stay in the jail for 21 subsequent months.

After coming out of the prison on a bail, he set his empire in Barwala, Hisar. The High Court gave his Karontha Ashram back to him in 2009. He then started taking things for granted as he did not appear in court regularly for the trial of the murder case.

The clash broke out once again outside the Karontha Ashram in May 2013 when the Arya Samajis tried to attack it while police forces were around. This time, it took 3 lives and injured more than a hundred. Arya Samajis demanded Rampal's arrest and trial.

In May 2014, when he appeared in front of the court through video conferencing, his followers created nuisance in the court premises. His followers once again interrupted the proceedings of the court in July 2014. Following this, the Punjab and Haryana High Court asked Rampal to appear in the court in the contempt of court case.

Despite more than 2000 police personnel on the roads and imposition of section 144, a huge crowd, which turned out to be his followers, gathered in the city. Rampal again made no appearance before the court.

Punjab and Haryana High Court then issued a non-bailable warrant against Rampal, in protest of which, his followers blocked the rail and road network in Ambala, Panchkula, and Chandigarh.

When the police tried to detain him a couple of days later, his followers surrounded the Satlok Ashram making sure that no one could touch their God. The human chains that they made reportedly contained kids in the forefront, followed by women and then men in the background, so as to make police hesitate in taking any action.

A ten-day stand-off between the security forces and Rampal's followers resulted in a number of innocent lives and injuries to the dozens. The operation finally closed on the night of 19th November 2014 when Rampal and 492 of his followers were arrested on the charges of motivating suicide-mongers, accumulating illegal weapons, murder, attempt to murder, conspiracy, and sedition.
