Jodhpur, Jan 8: It seems tainted godman Asaram Bapu will have to spend some more time in jail, as his bail plea was on Friday, Jan 8, rejected by Jodhpur Sessions Court in Rajasthan.
74-year-old Asaram has been lodged in Jodhpur jail since August 2013, in connection with the rape case of a 16-year-old girl.
Asaram has been represented in the court by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy and he cited almost the same grounds for bail as those in last bail hearing.
Earlier, three bail petitions of Asaram were turned down by lower court. Apart from the lower courts, he had twice unsuccessfully approached the High Court and was also denied relief by the Supreme Court.
