Last week, 67-year-old Rampal found guilty of two murders and other offences, including wrongful confinement of his victims at his hermitage.
Hisar Additional District and Sessions Judge D R Chaliya had pronounced the judgement after nearly four-year-long trial in a makeshift court inside the Hisar district jail.
Rampal and his followers have been lodged in the jail since their arrest in November 2014.
