Arrest warrant against Asaram Bapu?
Ahmedabad: With spiritual guru Asaram Bapu and his son Narayan Sai refusing to heed to the summons by Justice DK Trivedi Commission in connection with mysterious deaths of two teenage boys in 2008, stage is set for the issuing of an arrest warrant against them.
As per reports, if Asaram and Narayan Sai don’t appear before the commission on Tuesday then the commission may be forced to issue a warrant, leading to their possible arrest.
The father-son duo had submitted a petition before the commission seeking review of its order summoning them. But Justice (retd) Trivedi rejected it.
The summon was issued under the Commission of Inquiry Act, following the application by Prafful Waghela and Shantilal Waghela, the parents of the deceased boys, seeking questioning of Asaram and Narayan Sai.
Decomposed bodies of their teenage sons, Dipesh and Abhishek respectively, who were studying at Asaram Bapu`s ashram in Motera area here, were found from the banks of river Sabarmati on July 5, 2008, two days after they were reported missing by the ashram authorities.
The discovery of dead bodies created tension in the area, with local people demanding that culprits be brought to book.
