The spiritual guru, earlier, was a ‘tongawala’ named Asumal Sindhi. He used to carry pilgrims from railway station to Dargah Sharif to earn money in Ajmer.
Those days, he was nothing more than an ordinary man who used to work hard to earn money to live his life.
Asumal was just seven-year-old, when he came to India from Pakistan’s Sindh. He was a resident of Gujarat, before he went to Ajmer in 1963 and began living in Khari Kui with his family.
According to a senior advocate Charanjeet Singh Oberoi, Asumal was hard-working and wanted to earn money to help his family, which was thrown into poverty after Partition. He used to sit with tongawalas at Khari Kui and was often seen carrying pilgrims.”
It may be mentioned that Asaram was arrested on the complaint filed by a teenage girl from Uttar Pradesh’s Shahjahanpur.
The victim, who was studying at Asaram’s ashram at Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh, had alleged that the godman had called her to his ashram in Manai area near Jodhpur and raped her on the night of August 15, 2013.
Asaram was arrested from Indore and brought to Jodhpur on September 1, 2013. He is under judicial custody since September 2, 2013.
A chargesheet against Asaram and four other co-accused namely Shiva, Shilpi, Sharad and Prakash had been filed by police on November 6, 2013, under various sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, Juvenile Justice Act and Indian Penal Code.
Today on April 25, 2018, the trail court held him guilty in the rape case and will soon pronounce the quantum of sentence.
