Sexual assault case: Asaram, son move Gujarat High Court
Ahmedabad: A petition has been filed by self-styled godman Asaram Bapu and his son Narayan Sai in the Gujarat High Court seeking quashing of the complaints of sexual assault filed against them by two Surat-based sisters.
"We have filed a petition seeking quashing of complaints filed against Asaram Bapu and son Narayan Sai," said their lawyer advocate Yatin Oza.
The petition is likely to come up for hearing in a few days. Asaram, 72, is currently lodged in Jodhpur jail in connection with another sexual assault case while the whereabouts of Sai are not known.
Surat police had recently registered two complaints - one against Asaram and another against son Narayan Sai - of rape, sexual assault, illegal confinement and other charges.
The elder of the two sisters has accused Asaram of repeated sexual assaults between 1997 and 2006 when she was living in his ashram here.
The younger sister has accused Sai of repeated sexual assaults between 2002 and 2005 when she was living in Asaram`s Surat ashram.
City police have approached a Jodhpur court to seek custody for Asaram in the present case while Surat police have issued a lookout notice for Narayan Sai.
