Mumbai: Enraged by the arrest of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, his followers and supporters stopped several trains at Ulhasnagar`s railway tracks in the neighbouring Thane district on Sunday, official sources said.
Scores of Asaram Bapu supporters staged a rail roko at around 12.30 pm, delaying local trains between the Kalyan-Karjat section for over half-an-hour, they said.
Asaram was arrested by the Jodhpur Police after midnight from his ashram in Indore.

His arrest followed an FIR filed by a 16-year-old girl, alleging she was sexually assaulted by Asaram at his ashram in Jodhpur.
