Asaram's bail plea rejected
New Delhi, Nov 21: The Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant bail to self- styled godman Asaram Bapu, who is facing trial in rape cases.
Asaram had on Thursday moved Supreme Court seeking modification of its order citing that he has to undergo treatment at AIIMS in Jodhpur due to deteorating health condition.
Asaram and his son Narayan Sai also face charges of performing black magic. A PIL filed in the Supreme Court against Godman and his son claims that he saw Narayan Sai doing tantrik practice on the dead body of a child, said reports.
Scores of children had gone missing from Asaram's ashrams in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat.
Jodhpur police arrested Asaram on August 2013 and since then he is in prison. A teenager had accused Asaram of sexually assaulting her during celebration in a village near Jodhpur ashram.
