Asaram's aide Shilpi gives in, surrenders after a month

Asaram Bapu
Jodhpur, Sept 25: The warden of the school in Chhindwara, where the girl who was sexually assaulted by the self-styled godman stayed, has finally given in. Shilpi finally surrendered in Jodhpur after evading arrest for a month. Her plea for bail has been rejected. According to the Rajasthan police and as per the investigation records, she was the one who sent the girl to Asaram for an 'session' of exorcism.

While the godman is already in police custody since September 2, he is sinking deeper into trouble with each of his aides giving in one by one.

First, it was Shiva, his personal attendant, who said that the godman met women regularly in his "meditation hut" for healing sessions. Then, the threat call records, submitted by the girl's family, proved that things were murkier than they were.

Meanwhile, renowned lawyer Ram Jethmalani, who has taken up Asaram's case, argues that the 16-year old girl was unstable and needed help. He , however did not produce any evidence, which was pointed out by the prosecution. Furthermore, to strengthen the prosecution's case, Asaram's aides revealed that he did spend an hour with the girl in the hut on the pretext of exorcizing evil spirits.
