Asaram Bapu latest: February 10, 2014 - https://robertpriddy.wordpress.com/2014/02/10/asaram-bapu-latest-february-10-2014/ High Court rejects bail for Asaram Bapu
JANUARY 23, 2014 - Conspiracy theory about “International Conspiracy against Indian ‘saints’” - The charges against Asaram were made in India by Indians and the Indian police arrested him and his son. No international influence could have caused all the charges brought against them. So Asaram and gang are clearly getting more than desperate when they have to accuse foreign sources to try to divert attention from the crimes with which they are so formidably charged! Their attempts to bribe the police with huge sums did not work, so they can only have a vain hope that Narendra Modi becomes Prime Minister and may quash the charges against them, as Narasimha Rao and S. B. Chavan did for Sathya Sai Baba – see documentation.
Asaram and Sai: politics their only hope of their salvation? The pivotal case against rich and powerful bogus godmen-rapists yet to be staged in India is underway.
The Asaram Bapu exposé continues. This discredited claimant to holiness shows his true face more and more. He has performed mental, verbal and moral acrobatics in his various contrived attempts to stop the evidence emerging. Though the police are under scrutiny from treating Asaram Bapu more carefully than they would normally do with any non-guru or religiously neutral person, it is remarkable that the demand for a blood test even arose, considering the massive cover-up at all levels in which the entire Indian political, legal and police system conspired in regarding the far, far more extensive register of evidence of (unpunished) crimes by Sathya Sai Baba. It is a hopeful sign. The following recent developments are widely reported in the Indian press:-

Updated: Wednesday, September 11, 2013, Bareilly: The father of the 16-year-old girl, allegedly sexually assaulted by self-styled godman Asaram, has demanded that a Narco test be conducted on the religious preacher.
Talking to reporters at his residence in neighbouring Shahjahanpur district Tuesday night, the father expressed reservation over the support pouring in from the “blind followers” of 72-year-old Asaram Bapu and said that if they are so sure of his innocence why does the godman not face the polygraph and brain mapping tests.
“These tests would bring out the truth before the people and the world,” he said. The girl’s father said that his family is prepared for every inquiry. Stressing on a CBI inquiry, he said that those who are supporting Asaram should also demand a probe by the agency so that the truth could come out.
PIL demands CBI probe into Asaram Bapu case
Updated: Wednesday, September 11, 2013, Jodhpur: A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) was on Wednesday filed in Rajasthan High Court seeking a CBI probe into the allegations of sexual exploitation against self- styled godman Asaram Bapu. New Delhi-resident Ajay Gautam filed the plea today saying there were question marks over the ongoing police probe into the case. Gautam alleged that despite constant threats to the victim’s family, police was going slow in its probe. “Had it been a common man, police would have first arrested him and then proceeded with the investigation. But Asaram was given an unreasonable amount of time before his arrest,” the petitioner said.
Hearing the petitioner, a division bench of Chief Justice Amitav Roy and Justice Arun Bhansali deferred the hearing by two weeks.

Another special prosecutor to be sought for Asaram case: SIT
AHMEDABAD: Chief of the special investigation team (SIT) investigating the sexual assault case against self-styled godman Asaram, said here on Tuesday that it would request Gujarat government to provide another special prosecutor to make a water-tight case against him. “Looking at the sensitivity of the case, we will request the state government for another special prosecutor to assist us in the case against Asaram,” joint commissioner of police (JCP) (Sector-I) JK Bhatt told reporters here, when asked whether the SIT would ask for more legal assistance. — “Naturally, no accused co-operates during police investigation, especially when the case is such a sensitive one, but we are ensuring that no loopholes are left in our probe,” the JCP said, when asked if the godman is co-operating with the SIT.
