Three others, who were close aides of the sect chief, were also convicted by the court.
Krishan Lal, Kuldeep and Nirmal, who were present in the court, were immediately taken into custody by the police and shifted to the Ambala jail.
Tight security arrangements were made in and around the court complex in Panchkula in view of the court hearing.
Police were present near 'Naam Charcha ghars' (prayer complexes) of the sect in Haryana and Punjab to prevent any law and order situation from getting out of hand.
Security was increased around the sect's headquarters campus on the outskirts of Sirsa town, around 260 km from here.
Sect followers were not allowed to gather in big numbers.
Ram Rahim, who was feted by political leaders and parties of Punjab and Haryana for nearly two decades due to his ability to shift votes of his followers, is lodged in jail following his conviction on two counts of rape of his female disciples.
Ram Rahim's conviction had led to violence in Panchkula and Sirsa in Haryana, leaving 41 people dead and over 260 injured.
Ranjit Singh, who was believed to be privy to wrongdoing in the sect headquarters, was shot dead in July 2003.
