No CBI probe into kids death in Asaram Bapu's ashram: SC
New Delhi: In a major relief to godman Asaram Bapu, the Supreme Court on Friday rejected to order the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe against the spiritual guru in the 2008 death case of two boys, who were found dead in his Sabarmati ashram.

According to sources, Abhishek Vaghela (11) and his cousin Dipesh Vaghela (10) were found dead on the bed of Sabarmati river in July, 2008. Both went missing from a residential school of Asaram Bapu's Motrea Ashram in Ahmedabad in April in the same year.

Earlier on August 30, the Gujarat CID charge-sheeted seven office-bearers of Asaram Bapu's Ahmedabad ashram for their alleged role in mysterious death of the two boys. The charge sheet names seven sadhaks, Uday Sangani, Pankaj Saxena, Yogesh Bhati, Ajay Shah, Kaushik Vani, Vikas Khemaka and Minketan Patra, whose role in the case was investigated by the crime branch.

Post a huge public outcry over the deaths, the case was handed over to CID which after a year of probing had filed a complaint of culpable homicide and booked seven sadhaks of the Ashram.

Previously, Justice D K Trivedi Commission dismissed an application of Asaram Bapu in which he had demanded that the probe panel should come to his ashram to question him as a witness because of a number of reasons, including law and order.
