Jodhpur, Sept 12 IBNS | 2 years ago

A Rajasthan court rejected the anticipatory bail of warden of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu's Chhindwara hostel and his aide Shilpi on Thursday.

Asaram Bapu is in jail in connection with a minor's sexual assault case.

The Jodhpur Police earlier said Shilpi used to send women to Asaram saying ghosts and evil spirits are haunting them and that only the godman can ward those off.

The warden was absconding since Aug 29.

A 15-year-old girl, who was staying at Asaram's hostel in Rajasthan's Jodhpur, has filed a First Information Report (FIR) at Kamla market police station in Delhi alleging she was sexually assaulted by the godman.
