A team of Jodhpur police arrested Asaram.
It all started when Singh tweeted, asking why the usually vocal Swaraj was being silent over the allegations of rape against Bapu.
The most vocal voice of BJP against atrocities against women has been Sushma Swaraj. Why is she quiet in Asharam Bapu's case ?

Sushma Swaraj replied to the tweet this morning.
She further added:
How long will this tweet war continue and what will be its outcome, only time will tell.
Asaram, 72, was arrested by the Jodhpur Police after midnight from his Ashram and was taken to Indore Airport escorted by a large posse police personnel. He spent the night at the airport, the sources said.
Armed with the medical report, a team of Jodhpur police arrested Asaram and whisked him in a white jeep about half an hour after the stroke of midnight, after waiting for nearly eight hours at the ashram.
The sexual assault case was filed by an inmate of his Chhindwara-based ashram in Madhya Pradesh. The assault allegedly took place in Jodhpur following which a case was initially registered in Delhi and later transferred to Jodhpur for probe.
