Jodhpur, Aug 22: The teenage girl still a minor who made a startling revelation that Asaram Bapu assaulted her sexually and lodged complaint with police has narrated the ordeal of rape on him by spiritual guru and self proclaimed godman Asaram Bapu.
The 16-year-old girl accused Asaram Bapu of raping her at his Jodhpur Ashram when she paid a visit to the ashram recently. Delhi Police filed a case against the godman and are investigating it cautiously.
And police said that the girl was sent for medical examination which confirmed sexual assault. Police were quoted saying, "After sexual assault was confirmed in the medical examination of the girl, a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code has been registered at Kamla Market police station. As the incident took place in Rajasthan, we have moved the case to Jodhpur."
The girl narrated: I live in Chhindwara gurukul of Asaram Bapu. In the month of August, my health deteriorated. My parents were also informed. They reached Chhindwara. They were told that my condition has improved, but I would be completely well only after Bapu examines me.
When gurukul employees said Bapu was in Jodhpur and asked us to meet him there we reached Jodhpur on August 15. Asaram asked my parents to leave me at the Ashram as he needs to perform some religious rituals. In the night Asaram Bapu raped me. He threatened to kill me. Next day he asked me to go back to Chhindwara. But, I went to my home with my parents. I was scared. I could narrate the whole incident to my parents only after reaching my home.
The self proclaimed godman is mired in many other controversies including one for his remarks on Nirbhaya the Delhi gang rape girl that she was also as much responsible for the crime. Police are handling the case with caution.
