Rajasthan High Court on Monday will hear the petition moved by controversial self-styled godman Asaram Bapu,seeking bail in the alleged sexual assault case of a minor.
The controversial godman has been in the judicial custody after his arrest on September 1 from his Indore ashram. The custody ends on September 16.
Last week a lower court had rejected the bail plea of 72-year-old Asaram,who is currently lodged in the Jodhpur Central Jail.
His aide Shiva,who is considered as a key witness in the case,is also under judicial custody.
The 16-year-old girl had lodged a complaint with the police on August 20,accusing Asaram of sexually assaulting her at his Jodhpur ashram.
