Asaram case: Gurukul warden’s anticipatory bail plea rejected

A court here on Thursday rejected the anticipatory bail plea of a warden of one of Asaram Bapu’s ashrams, who is a co-accused in the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl by the self-style godman.

The district and sessions court trashed the bail application of Shilpi, who heads the Chhindwara Gurukul ashram in Madhya Pradesh.

Referring to the Shilpi’s role in the alleged conspiracy and ‘adequate evidence’ against her, Judge Manoj Kumar Vyas observed that accepting the bail application of Shilpi was not fit at this stage of probe.

Shilpi, apprehending arrest by the police, had moved the application in the court yesterday stating that she has already been interrogated by the police in the case and has nothing to with the matter.

Rebutting her claim, the prosecution counsel Anand Purohit said that police is after her on the basis of the strong evidence.
