Ahmedabad, Oct 4: As the trouble for self-styled godman Asaram Bapu refuses to die down, his former disciple has come up with more shocking revelations.
According to a report, Rahul Sharma, a former disciple (sadhak) of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu has revealed that he once saw Asaram reading Vatsyayana's Kamasutra in his private cottage named Shanti Kutiya at the Motera ashram in Ahmedabad.
"Bapu told me that it was essential to read Kamasutra books to get an in-depth knowledge of Ayurveda," disclosed Sharma.
Asaram used to read Vatsyayana's Kamasutra in his private cottage.
Yesterday, one of the coordinators of Asaram revealed he had seen the godman semi-nude with women in a swimming pool.
While talking to a Gujarat website Divyabhaskar, Rahul Sharma, a saadhak, who has been a coordinator at Motera ashram since 1993 said, "I had the permission to enter Shanti Kutiya. I used to go to Kutiya for providing Opium and other drugs to him, quite often. I've seen him reading Vatsayan Sutra (Kamasutra) books at nights. Other saadhaks were not allowed to enter Kutiya at night hours."
According to Rahul, on being asked about the books and drugs, the 72-year-old, who is accused of sexually assaulting a minor used to justify his acts.
"Although I was his devotee, but one day when I visited him, I saw Bapu kissing neck of a 17-year-old girl in his kutiya. I was completely shocked to witness his despicable act," said the saadhak, adding, "In a moment, I decided to leave Kutiya. Few days after the incident, I left the ashram aware of the fact that he was no godman."
In another revelation, another saadhak Ajay Kumar told Divyabhaskar that there was a lavish Shanti kutiya built inside Motera Ashram in Ahmedabad. He also said that besides other world-class amenities, there was a big swimming pool where Asaram used to relax with his female devotees.
