SC rejects Asaram Bapu’s bail plea

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday rejected the bail plea of self-styled preacher Asaram Bapu, who is facing trial in a rape case lodged against him in Gujarat. A bench comprising justices N V Ramana and Ajay Rastogi was informed by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the Gujarat government, that the trial in the case was going on and 10 witnesses were yet to be examined.
The apex court was hearing Asaram’s plea against the January 2015 order passed by the Gujarat HC which had dismissed his bail application in the case. Two Surat-based sisters had lodged separate complaints against Asaram and his son accusing them of rape among other charges. (PTI)
