A local court has reserved its order for February 22, on an application charging self-styled godman Asaram’s son Narayan Sai of donning a Sikh turban during his arrest in December last year.

First class judicial magistrate Manoj Kumar Ladiya reserved his judgement on the application filed by Gagandeep Singh Bhati, president of local Yuva Sikh Morcha after arguments in the case ended yesterday.
Gagandeep’s lawyer Inder Singh Bhatia said the court will announce its decision on February 22 on whether or not a case should be proceeded against Sai or not.

Sai was wearing a red turban when he was arrested in early December last after evading arrest for 58 days. The father-son duo is facing cases of sexual assault. 40-year-old Sai was apprehended from Haryana-Delhi border in the sexual assault case lodged against him by an inmate of his Surat-based ashram. He himself had admitted to police on December 11 that he had physical relationship with eight of his female disciples.

Two Surat-based sisters had lodged complaints against Sai and his father of rape, sexual assault, illegal confinement and other charges while staying in the Gujarat ashram.

In her complaint, the younger of the two sisters had accused Sai of repeated sexual assault between 2002 and 2005 when she was living at the Surat ashram. While his father and controversial spiritual guru Asaram has been lodged in the Central Jail in Jodhpur since his arrest in August 2013 on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl in his ‘ashram’ there besides being accused of raping the Surat girls.

    paid media news are too many these days.everything we see is just cooked by media for their own benefit.90 percent of media news channels are like that.why didnt news channel showed that sant asaramji bapu was proven not guilty in the court last year the morning they were all showing that sant asaramji bapu is to be presented today in court and then when result came out of the court in favour of sant asaramji bapu then no one showed the news.there were reports that there is a cd and then the police guy said on tv that there is absolutely no truth in it in press conference but news channel kept showing that there is a cd even when the police is saying on tvthere is case going on against deepak chaurisiya that he used a fake cd for defamation.and the little girl in that video and her family are the one who lodged the complaintbeing secular means to torture hindu and respect others.media is totally biased except maybe one or two. www.ashramplease open ur eyes and really start to seebill james-it is extremely dangerous to a fair trial that people reaching judgement before facts are heard in a court

      सूरत।नारायण सांई के खिलाफ यौन उत्पीड़न के आरोपों की जांच कर रही स्पेशल इन्वेस्टिगेशन टीम की प्रमुख डीसीपी शोभा ड़ा को फोन पर धमकी देने वाले को आखिरकार उमरा पुलिस ने मध्यप्रदेश के अशोकनगर जिले से गिरफ्तार कर लिया। मंगलवार को उसे कोर्ट में पेश कर चार दिन के पुलिस रिमांड पर लिया गया।अशोकनगर जिले के पीपसरे गांव में दबिश देकर अभियुक्त राजू गजरामसिंह यादव (19) को गिरफ्तार कर लिया गया। सोमवार रात पुलिस उसे सूरत ...ले आई। पुलिस के मुताबिक पूछताछ के दौरान उसने बताया कि वह किसान है और नारायण सांई या आसाराम से उसके कोई संबंध नहीं हैं। न वह साधक है और न किसी साधक से उसका परिचय है। पुलिस ने उसके पास से एक मोबाइल फोन जब्त किया है। जिससिम कार्ड से डीसीपी शोभा ड़ा को कॉल किया गया था, वहचार मोबाइल में उपयोग किया गया। अभियुक्त ने फोन करने की बात कबूल कर ली है। उसने बताया कि नारायण सांई के फरार रहने के दौरान वह और उसका दोस्त कृष्णपालसिंह यादव टीवी पर खबर देख रहे थे, तब डीसीपी शोभा ड़ा का नंबर दर्शाया जा रहाथा। नंबर देखकर दोनों ने मजाक करने की ठानी।कृष्णपालसिंह के कहने पर उसने फोन कर धमकी दी थी।"जब ये बात सिद्ध हो गई है कि संत आशाराम जी बापू के साधकों ने धमकी नहीं दी... तो फिर क्यों संत आशाराम जी बापू और उनके साधकों को अराजक तत्व बताकर बापू जी को जमानत नहीं दी जा रही है.... कुछ लोग बापू को जमानत न मिल पाये इसलिए फोन करते हैं और पुलिस के पकडने पर पता चला की वो बापू के साधक थे ही नहीं अब क्यों चुप है प्रशासन, पुलिस, कोर्ट और मिडिया एक 75 साल के बुजुर्ग संत को पिछले 5 महिने से इसलिए जेल में रखा था की उनके साधक धमकी देते हैं पर धमकी देनेवाला तो कोई और ही निकलता है....इससे यह बिलकुल स्पष्ट होता है कि कोर्ट.और पुलिस राजनैतिक दबाव और मिडिया के दबाव मे काम कर रहे है.
