The 77 year old so called Godman Asaram Bapu who had raped a 16 year old girl in 2013, along with other young girls who had also complained, was in jail for the past five years. 12 attempts to get bail had failed.
The traumatised sixteen year old girl had retreated into depression after the trauma.
Finally today a judge found him guilty! Several witnesses had been threatened and harmed by this eerie Godman whose son was also imprisoned for the same offence. They ran an ashram very close to Gandhiji’s ashram!
