35-year-old Akhil was shot by unknown persons on his way home in Muzaffarnagar in January this year.
The alleged conversation took place about eight months ago, the girl’s father has claimed. Kripal had recorded his statement in a Jodhpur court two months ago.
The minor had alleged that Asaram sexually assaulted her at a farmhouse in Jodhpur.
Two years since the first rape case against Asaram surfaced, victims and families of the witnesses killed live in dread.
In his dying declaration, Kripal had reportedly named three persons accusing them of attacking him.
Police in Muzaffarnagar and Shahjahanpur have begun a joint investigation to ascertain whether two witnesses in two separate rape cases registered against Asaram Bapu were killed by the same attackers.
Naresh Gupta has sought a CBI probe into the murder of his son Akhil alleging that the local police failed to trace the accused in Muzaffarnagar on Sunday.
The alleged rape victim’s father claimed that Asaram’s associates were behind the attack and wants CBI probe into attacks on witnesses.
The victim’s counsel said that they were hopeful of a strong and exemplary verdict in the Asaram Bapu assault case.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy—who had appeared in Asaram’s defence—argued that the case against Asaram was fabricated and that he deserved bail.
After framing the charges, the court kept further trial proceedings on June 23.
Asaram is languishing in Jodhpur jail since his arrest in September 2013.
The Surat police had arrested seven accused among 12 who were allegedly involved in attacks on witnesses.
They alleged that the local police have not arrested anyone in this connection yet.
Narayan will be under the police surveilence during the bail period and state DGP will deploy an officer for this purpose.
