The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed the bail application of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu and ordered a fresh FIR against him for attaching a false medical document along with his plea. He was also slapped with Rs 1 lakh in fine for filing a “frivolous petition”. Asaram, who is facing allegations of sexual assault, moved the apex court for bail on medical grounds.  Refusing to modify its earlier order that had declined him interim bail, the Supreme Court bench observed that the instant plea was devoid of merit and, therefore, dismissed. This was the seventh bail application of the 74-year-old that has been rejected by the court. He was sent to jail in August 2013 for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old school girl.

                The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) has asked for detailed information on the full extent of child abuse in churches and missionary schools worldwide by Christians priests, monks and nuns. It has also asked how the Vatican prevents abusers from contacting additional children and how the Vatican ensures that known crimes against children are reported to the police. In the past the Church hierarchy failed to report abuse to law enforcement and allowing abusers further contact with children.
