New Delhi: In yet another setback to self-acclaimed godman Asaram Bapu, the Supreme Court on Thursday denied interim bail to him and directed the AIIMS to constitute a medical board to evaluate his health.
According to news agency ANI, the medical board has been asked to submit its report within 10 days to the apex court.
On Tuesday, the Rajasthan High Court had rejected the bail application of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu, who is facing rape charges.
This was the ninth regular bail application of Asaram that was rejected. An interim bail plea was rejected by the high court last month.
While rejecting the application, Justice Nirmal Jeet Kaur said since the trial of the case has reached its fag end, it was not appropriate to grant the bail. Prosecution counsel P C Solanki said the court also rejected the argument of defence that the trial of the case was taking long.
A teenage girl had accused Asaram of sexual assault at his ashram in Manai village near Jodhpur.
The girl belonging to Shahjahanpur in Uttar Pradesh, was a student at the ashram.
Following her complaint, Asaram was arrested by Jodhpur Police on August 31, 2013 and has been in jail since then.
