Sexual assault case: Jodhpur Police at Asaram Bapu's Ahmedabad premises to serve summons

Ahmedabad, Aug. 26 : A team of the Jodhpur police arrived at the ashram of spiritual leader Asaram Bapu on Monday to serve a summons on the latter in connection with a sexual assault case.

A 15-year-old girl has alleged in her complaint that Asaram Bapu had asked her to stay back after prayers last week and had then sexually assaulted her as her mother waited outside.

Though the godman is not in Ahmedabad, the police will serve the summons to the ashram office-bearers.
According to television reports, Asaram Bapu has been given four days to appear before the police for questioning in the case.

Police officials said last week that the description of the scene of crime matches with the details given by the girl in the First Information Report.

Asaram Bapu has also reportedly admitted that he met the girl at his ashram in Jodhpur, but has denied her allegations of a sexual assault.

The girl is from Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
