The Rajasthan High Court on Tuesday denied bail to godman Asaram Bapu, who is now in jail for sexually assaulting a minor girl.

Moreover, charges of paedophilia were slapped on him by the police investigating his alleged sexual crimes.

Earlier on Monday, a Jodhpur court extended the judicial remand of the self-styled godman who is in jail in connection with the minor's assault case, till Oct 11.

Asaram was sent to jail on Sept 2 after the court remanded him to a 14-day judicial custody first.

Earlier, Asaram passed potency test, which established that he is medically fit and sexually potent.

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