The court has also imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on him. The survivor had visited godman's ashram on 7 August to offer her first salary from her internship to him. The latter told her to stay for the night and raped her.

Falahari Baba's real name is Swami Kaushlendra Prapannachari, and he is believed to be surviving on fruits, and so got his name.

The additional district and sessions judge Rajendra Sharma on Tuesday heard the arguments from the two sides for about three hours. While the victim's case was represented by Anil Vashisth, the accused's case was represented by Ashok Sharma.
