NEW DELHI: Godman Asaram Bapu, who has been in Jodhpur Central Jail since September 2 on charges of raping a minor, has welcomed the victory of the BJP in assembly elections in four states.
Talking to the media at the court of District and Sessions Judge Manoj Kumar Vyas in Jodhpur, the controversial godman blamed the Congress for framing him in the alleged rape case. He said his `curse’ is behind the defeat of the Congress in Rajasthan – where he is lodged in jail – and Delhi.
Referring to the win of the BJP as `the victory of truth,’ Asaram Bapu said, “People know everything what’s happening around.’’
The godman and four of his associates have been charged under Sections 342 (wrongful confinement), 376(2) (f) (rape of minor girl), 376 D (rape), 354-A (outraging the modesty of a woman), 506 (criminal intimidation) and 109 (abetment to an offence) of the Indian Penal Code.
If found guilty, Asaram and the co-accused could be sentenced from 10 years to life term.
