Asaram Bapu
New Delhi, Sept 4: The 16-year-old girl, who shocked the nation after filing a police complaint against Asaram Bapu, finally mastered courage to face media. The complainant explained how she was molested by the 72-year-old spiritual guru on Aug 15, 2013.

According to her statement, the septuagenarian called the girl inside his room in his ashram in Jodhpur, Rajasthan. The self-styled godman allegedly had assaulted her for more than one hour. When the girl began screaming, Asaram allegedly had threatened her saying that he would kill her parents.

The complainant, in the FIR filed with the Jodhpur police, explained how she allegedly was assaulted by the spiritual leader who reportedly first switched off the light of his room and then started molesting her touching her private parts. He also allegedly had tried to strip the girl.

The girl, while speaking to media persons, was quoted as saying, "It was a big mistake. The day I met Asaram at his Jodhpur ashram was the worst day of my life."

Asaram should be punished

Continuing her statement, she added, "I hope my best and brightest day will come soon. I want to see Asaram undergoing punishment. This guru shouldn't be allowed to interact with children."

Mother of the complainant also said, "This guru shouldn't be worshipped." Meanwhile, Asaram's lawyers said, "The FIR against Asaram does not stand as there are several lacunae in it."

A court in Jodhpur would hear Asaram's bail plea on Wednesday, Sept 4. Asaram currently has been sent to 14-day judicial custody till Sept 16.
