Spiritual Guru Asaram Bapu, who has over 20 million followers worldwide, running more than 400+ ashrams, and who is an ‘advisor and political guru’ to many Indian politicians, included PM Modi has been awarded Life Imprisonment.
The latest verdict came in the 2013 case, where the spiritual guru is accused of sexually abusing a young girl. ‘In the name of exorcism, Asaram Bapu has abused our daughter. We are happy that he is being punished. This verdict once again instills the faith in our judiciary’, said a senior lawyer associated with the case.
After the girl’s parents lodged a police complaint against Asaram Bapu in August 2013. The police tried to arrest. But, the Spiritual guru locked himself in his ashram, and it was only on September 1st he has been arrested.
Since then he has been spending his time in the Jodhpur jail. Initially, the verdict was supposed to be given in the court premises. Keeping in mind of the violent acts that place in the case of Dera Baba, the authorities arranged for special hearing within the Jodhpur Jail premises in a special room. The Rajasthan High Court has so far rejected 12 bail petitions of the spiritual guru.
