"A raid was conducted at an asharam in a village in Darbhanga to arrest Narayan Sai, but he was not found," said a district police official.
The search came after a tip-off that Narayan Sai may be hiding in the asharam.
Police acted on reports that Narayan Sai's bodyguard-cum-driver, who is a native of Ariyari village, was spotted visiting the ashram repeatedly in last few days.
The driver was also not found present in the ashram, the official said.
Asaram, who was arrested in a sexual exploitation case at his ashram near Rajasthan's Jodhpur city, faced similar charges from a minor in Gujarat's Surat. He has been taken to the Gujarat city for questioning.
