A key witness in an ongoing rape case involving a self-proclaimed Indian godman Asaram Bapu was killed religious leader was killed last Friday (July 10, 2015) . Coming after a long list of attacks on nine potential witnesses until now, this is the second death of witnesses who were to testify against this toxic ‘religious ‘ guru’. Asaram Bapu Time.com reports:- “The prospective witness, Kripal Singh, was shot by two assailants in the district of Shahjahanpur in the country’s northern state of Uttar Pradesh, Indian broadcaster NDTV reported. The duo were on a motorcycle and warned Singh not to depose against the “godman,” Asaram Bapu, before shooting him and fleeing. The 35-year-old Singh was then rushed to a nearby hospital where he died of his injuries, police said. Singh was an employee at a transport firm owned by a man whose daughter was allegedly raped by Bapu at his ashram in 2013. Akhil Gupta, Bapu’s former cook – a primary witness in the Gujarat rape case – was shot dead in north India town this January. The Indian Express newspaper reported that police have begun a joint investigation to determine whether he was a victim of the same killers.” (See In two Asaram witness killings, one method: similar gun, similar shot – (See more at: In two Asaram witness killings, one method: similar gun, similar shot) Asaram Bapu is still in prison in Jodhpur, where his ashram was. He has been detained since September 2013, having been accused two months previously of a second rape by two sisters – carried out along with his son Narayan Sai at one of his ashrams in Gujarat two months after initially being jailed.” Seven other witnesses have been attacked in the case against Asaram Bapu (long since notorious for his 2012 statements blaming the victim of India’s most dreadful rape and murder case in New Delhi). (See world.time.com) It has long been known that many Hindu gurus are involved in sexual abuses, murders and numerous other crimes for which they have been charged, while only a relative few have been convicted (see here). The infamous Asaram Bapu, a super-rich ‘godman’ with countless fanatical followers, is a major case in point… his dossier is a stunning indictment of his many-sided criminality. His defence is obviously to eliminate all witnesses by killing them or scaring them off. The Indian police and judiciary system, already often biassed in favour of Hindu gurus, still seems quite incapable of handling this dangerous person and his following.
