Jodhpur, Sept 15: Counsel for the girl, who was allegedly sexually exploited by Asaram Bapu, on Sunday claimed to have received threats from followers of the self-styled godman. Lawyer of the victim, Manish Vyas, claimed that the threat was issued to a friend of the victim's father asking him to withdraw the statements of her daughter against Asaram.

Referring to an audio clip, Vyas said the girl and her family continue to receive threats from Asaram's followers. "I have urged the police to ensure adequate security to the family," Vyas said.

Asaram's judicial custody ended on Monday.

A massive controversy broke out after Asaram Bapu and his followers openly defied the law after a minor accused him of sexually exploiting her when she had gone to seek his blessing. Political parties were accused of shielding Asaram Bapu for vote-bank politics and he was caught only after the media and common protesters created a big uproar.
