After the recent twist in the sexual assault case, followers of the spiritual guru reportedly expressed their desire to take back a land which was given to Asaram to build new ashram.
Maheshwari family in Ujjain had donated around 8 bigha land for Asaram's ashram. Now, citing all hullabaloos over Asaram, the family wants to take back the land. The ashram was constructed some 20 years back on the Mangalnath Road on the land donated by mawa trader Pannalal Maheshwari.
A family member was quoted as saying, "We would soon meet district collector and also take legal advice from lawyers to initiate the process to take our land back."
Meanwhile, a District and Sessions court in Jodhpur on Thursday, Sept 12 rejected the anticipatory bail plea of self-styled godman Asaram's aide and Chhindwara hostel warden Shilpi.
Shilpi, who was absconding since her name was connected with Asaram Bapu, has brought a new twist in the sexual assault case. Days after all controversies, the warden on Wednesday claimed that she does not know the self-proclaimed godman.
Earlier it was reported that Asaram allegedly had physical relation with Shilpi who also used to supply girls, women to the spiritual leader.
Asaram was arrested in connection with a sexual assault case in which he was accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old minor girl in his ashram near Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Shilpi came in police radar when it was reported that the hostel warden along with another accused had told the girl's parents that the girl had evil spirit, hence forced them to visit Asaram's ashram. Later the "guru" took the girl inside his room and allegedly had molested her.
