The illegally-constructed main entrance gate of an asharam of controversial godman Asaram Bapu here was demolished on Friday by the Madhya Pradesh Road Development Corporation.
The action was initiated after the ashram’s authorities concerned failed to produce permission certificate for construction of the gate after MPRDC issued notice to the ashram a week ago,sources said.
Asaram is in jail for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor daughter of his follower in his Jodhpur ashram.
“The entrance gate of his (Asaram’s) ashram was razed as it was raised without requisite permission,” the sources added.
According to sources,the gate was also affecting flow of traffic on the busy Indore-Khandwa road where it is located.
