Asaram case being probed by Jodhpur Police Commissioner:Gehlot

Jaipur, Aug 22, 2013 (PTI)

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today said rape charge against controversial guru Asaram Bapu was being investigated by Jodhpur Police Commissioner and action would be taken on the basis of "truth and facts".

"I have spoken to Jodhpur Police Commissioner last night and told him to investigate the case at every level, and ensure action based on truth and facts," Gehlot told reporters after a Solar workshop here.

Delhi police filed a case against Asaram Bapu on the complaint of a 16-year-old girl that he had sexually assaulted her in a Jodhpur ashram recently.

"Jodhpur police has already inspected the place of alleged crime," Gehlot said, adding that "Levelling allegations against someone is one matter...I think guilty should get punishment.

"...until the investigation in the case is over, I will not comment on it. Jodhpur Police Commissioner and Superintendent of Police are tackling the case...let the process of probe be completed," he said.

"Sadhu-sants preaching religion or spirituality should maintain their best character and work in their limit as any bad message would hurt and shock the society. People in society pay their regards to these sadhus and sants, such cases are not a good sign," he said.
