Asaram purported for sexual assault to a teenage girl
A 16-year-old girl complained to Delhi Police against Asaram Bapu for sexual assault
The teenage girl gave a written complaint against the 74-year-old self-styled godman at Kamla Market police station.
“After sexual assault was confirmed in the medical examination of the girl, a case under relevant sections of IPC has been registered at Kamla Market police station. As the incident took place in Rajasthan, we have moved the case to Jodhpur,” said a police official.
However, a spokesperson of Asaram Bapu’s Ashram rubbished the charges.
“This is an entirely false case. It is yet another attempt to tarnish Bapu’s image. Let the investigation happen. Whoever is behind this (case) will be exposed,” said Neelam Dubey, the Ashram’s spokesperson.
Asaram was earlier criticized for making controversial remarks about the December 16 gang rape case when he said that the girl would have escaped the ordeal had he called her attacker brothers and pleaded them for mercy.
