In a major setback to self- styled religious guru Asaram Bapu, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to give him relief in connection with two rape cases registered against him. The apex court bench headed by Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghose will hear the matter next on November 28. Asaram had earlier knocked the doors of the apex court seeking bail on health grounds.

The Gujarat Government had earlier told the apex court division bench that the rape case registered against Asaram would very likely proceed in an expeditious manner, adding that the trial would be completed within six months so the bail should not be granted to him in the case.

The Supreme Court had earlier this month sought the response of the Centre and five states on a plea seeking a CBI probe into the alleged murder of children through black magic and attacks on ten witnesses in Asaram Bapu rape cases.

    He is a victim of legal terrorist. Court failed to prove he raped the girl after long three years keeping a man in jail. No law can arrest a innocent men. The court and polices are the terrorist if they are torturing a innocent man, they should be sentenced to jail for life. If the man has been arrested to please women empowerment then dont vote for Modi if he (Modi) fails to provide justice to the victim man.

              Bapu is Virile, he cannot be roaming free among men and women and children period. He has eliminated all witnesses systematically and in none the murderers were prosecuted. It will be a mockery of Justice to all those innocent who believed him and placed their trust in him to be in turn raped by him !!!

                Terrorists have not to be proved in the court first they are terrorists before being called terroists.. By the same logic I guess.

                    Irony of Today:lt;br/gt;Where proven culprits like Tarun Tejpal get bail and Asaram Bapu is languishing in jail even when there is no proof against him.lt;br/gt;P.s.- Medical report of the girl says no rape , no scratch found.

                        Do not agree at all. the person who could be of the opinion that 'if she uttered Saraswati mantra and called the aulters as brother, then she could have avoided rape' after the terrible nirbhaya incident, can be and do evil of any proportions. These are miscreants of he highest order.
