Bhopal: Self-styled godman Asaram Bapu failed to catch a flight on Friday for New Delhi, after he was prevented from entering the airport due to a clash between his enraged supporters who smashed TV cameras and other equipment carried by reporters waiting for him, sources said.

As news about the Gujarat High Court not entertaining his plea for an anticipatory bail spread, Asaram suddenly left his ashram for the airport, to catch his flight.

However, due to a scuffle between Asaram's supporters and TV news cameramen waiting at the airport over recording his sound bytes, his supporters could not enter the lounge to catch the flight.

Later, his supporters fought with reporters again and even resorted to pelting stones at the media, while Asaram's whereabouts were not known, sources said.
