Jodhpur, Oct 26 IBNS | 11 months ago

The Jodhpur Police are likely to file a chargesheet against self-styled godman Asaram Bapu and four others in a sexual assault case on Saturday.


On Friday, a sessions court in Jodhpur extended Asaram's judicial custody by a day.

"The Investigating Officer (IO) told the court that the police would file the chargesheet tomorrow," prosecution lawyer Pradeep Choudhary told media.

Asaram was sent to the Jodhpur Central Jail on Sept 2 after the court remanded him to a 14-day judicial custody first for assaulting a minor.

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.
