Asaram convicted in 2013 rape case

The Jodhpur court will pronounce the verdict in Asaram rape case on April 25

Special prohibitory orders have already been issued in Jodhpur, where the trial court will deliver its verdict, with the Rajasthan High Court imposing Section 144, which prohibits the gathering of more than four people in an area, until April 30.

The fallout from the cases has put pressure on Prime Minister Narendra Modi's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who opponents accuse of defending the men implicated in both attacks.

A Jodhpur trial court will deliver its verdict on the self-styled godman Asaram rape case on Wednesday amid tight security.

"We are in touch with police forces from neighbouring states to avert any untoward incident". In a communication to the states, the MHA asked the governments to deploy additional forces in sensitive places and ensure that no violence takes place after the verdict. He has previously been booked in similar cases Rajasthan, Haryana and Gujarat.

Asaram was represented in the court by eminent lawyers such as Ram Jethmalani and Subramanian Swamy. The girl was a student in his ashram.

Security has been beefed up in the city by keeping in mind the verdict of the case.

Asaram, in jail since August 31, 2013, was charged under relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, and the Scheduled Castes and Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.

According to Sant Asaram Bapuji ki Jeevan Jhanki, an auto-biography published by his ashram, the spiritual leader received formal education until his father's death and had studied only until class III.

29 August 2013: Asaram claims that "madam and son" are targeting him. -The Jodhpur Court also dismissed a petition seeking entry of media persons in Central Jail of Jodhpur for the coverage of the judgement.

Asaram is accused of raping a teenage girl from Shahajahanpur in Uttar Pradesh, who was studying at the godman's ashram at Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh. He has been under judicial custody since 2 September, 2013. On November 6, 2013, the Jodhpur police filed a chargesheet against Asaram and four others. He dies of bullet injuries.

However, despite registration of the case, the victims in the surat rape case were not examined despite the court's order.

The two women had resided in Asaram's ashram in Gujarat between 1997 and 2006. In 2014, Asaram¿s personal aide was shot dead, while another associate was killed in 2015 in Muzaffarnagar. A charge-sheet is filed on 19 December 2017.

Since his imprisonment, Asaram, 77, has had several bail applications rejected.

Final arguments in the case had been completed by the special court for SC/ST cases on April 7.

Earlier in the day, a follower of Asaram who had reached Jodhpur Central Jail with a garland was detained by police.
