The hearing of the bail plea of Asaram Bapu,who is accused of sexually assaulting a minor,remained unfinished Tuesday evening and was postponed to Wednesday morning.

Defence counsel K K Menon argued that Asaram be granted bail citing a “larger conspiracy” against the self-styled guru and a “manipulated medico-legal certificate” of the alleged victim.

Despite a two-hour hearing,the prosecution could not complete its arguments and will be heard on Wednesday.

“This is a false case. There is a larger conspiracy against Asaram Bapu. If you look at the medico-legal certificate (MLC),it says it was an attempt to rape and not rape. A few points were included in MLC later and they do not support the victim’s stand. The statement of the victim is not valid in the eyes of the law,” Menon said.
