Asaram has been repeatedly denied bail after he was jailed in connection with several case of rape and sexual misconduct in August 2013.
A teenaged girl of Asaram’s Chindwara-based gurukul had accused him of sexual assault at his ashram near Jodhpur.
Another girl from Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh had also accused Asaram of sexual misconduct.
