New Delhi: The self-acclaimed Godman Asaram Bapu has once again come under the legal trouble following the lodge of FIR against him which accused the spiritual guru of sexually assaulting a 16 years girl who stayed in the hostel in Jodhpur run by Asaram’s trust.

Over the complaint of the girl, a case has been lodged against him under the sections 376(rape), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a women) and 354 (assault on women with intent to outrage her modesty).

Meanwhile, this has not been the first such incident against Asaram Babu as earlier he hogged limelight for his remarks over the girl who was brutally assaulted by six cruel men in Delhi on December 16, 2012. Asaram said that Damini (name changed) was equally responsible of her rape like those six men. He said that she should have called them brother and pleaded for mercy which would certainly have saved her modesty.

Meanwhile, the sixteen years old girl staying in a hostel operated by the trust of Popular Godman Asaram Bapu at Jodhpur has filed a complaint against him in the national capital. Girl’s father describes the reason behind filing a complaint at Kamla Market police station in Delhi as he felt that her complaint would have been suppressed in Jodhpur.

The girl belongs to Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh.
