Jodhpur: Almost five years after a minor was raped by self-styled godman Asaram, the Jodhpur Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Court pronounced him guilty.
The victim was raped in Manai village near Jodhpur on August 15, 2013.
“We will discuss with our legal team and then decide our future course of action. We have confidence in our judiciary,” Asaram’s spokesperson Neeta Dubey said.
The verdict was delivered by Special Judge Madhusudan Sharma, inside the Jodhpur Central jail.
Security was beefed up in Rajasthan and outside the victim’s home, ahead of the verdict.
Over 100 followers of the self-styled godman were taken into preventive custody.
