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.
