In a sign of even more trouble for controversial godman Asaram Bapu, the Jodhpur Police on Thursday claimed that Asaram's aide Shiva has a CD that contains recordings of the self-styled godman's alleged sexual acts.
Shiva, however, denies knowledge of any such CD saying the case doesn't hold water. "I don't know what warden you're talking about, there are so many wardens in the schools. I say again there is no truth in this case," he said to reporters.
The police, though, are convinced that such a CD exists and they are on the look out for the warden - Shilpi - who took the teenage girl to Asaram on 15 August.
"We're chasing leads wherever Shiva's name pops up and tracking down any other people who could be involved in this case," Jodhpur DCP Ajaypal Lamba said to media.
The warden allegedly lured the minor victim to Asaram's ashram where the wealthy 'godman' reportedly promised to build a college just for her. The warden is also alleged to have scared the minor into meeting Asaram through stories of ghosts and demonic possession.
Asaram, 72, is currently lodged in Jodhpur Central Jail after a court remanded him to 14-days’ judicial custody in connection with the alleged sexual assault on a 16-year-old girl at his ashram near Jodhpur.
