Congress on Friday attacked Finance Minister Arun Jaitley over his "small rape incident" remark terming it a "huge injustice" but also faced uncomfortable questions over its spokesperson Salman Khurshid pleading in a court for bail of rape accused Asaram Bapu a few days back.
Gujarat High Court on Monday issued notice to the Gujarat government over the bail petition filed by controversial self-styled godman Asaram Bapu`s son Narayan Sai, currently lodged at Surat jail on the charges of rape and conspiring to bribe officials to weaken the case against him.
The Gujarat High Court issued a notice to the Gujarat government here Tuesday in connection with disgraced spiritual guru Asaram`s regular bail plea in the rape case filed against him by a Surat-based girl.
A local court reserved its judgement today on a revision petition filed on the issue of Narayan Sai allegedly hurting Sikh religious sentiments by sporting a Sikh style turban and beard, when he was nabbed by the police.
One of the lawyers representing self-styled godman Asaram today quit citing personal reasons leading to which a court here adjourned the ongoing cross examination of the teenage girl and also slapped a fine on the defence as no other lawyer was ready to further the proceedings.
