Asaram gets no Relief, Medical Test on Dec 3

New Delhi, Dec 01: In a setback to Asaram, the Supreme Court on Monday said that the bail application of the controversial guru will be heard after a medical test that will be conducted on December 03.

Asaram, who is currently lodged in Jodhpur jail, will undergo a medical test on Wednesday.

The self styled god Asaram was arrested in September last year following a complaint filed by a 16-year-old girl alleging him of sexually assaulting her at his ashram in Jodhpur.

Earlier, the apex court had asked the AIIMS to set up a medical board to review the medical papers and reports of Asaram, who is suffering from neurological aliment trigeminal neuralgia, to examine whether he required surgery.

While asking to review the medical papers of the accused, the court had declined his plea for bail saying he could make a fresh application after the all the material witnesses in the case have testified before the trial court.

The court also asked the Rajasthan government to make available all the medical records of Asaram to the AIIMS.
