SC to hear bail plea of rape accused Asaram Bapu

ANI  |  New Delhi [India] 

The Supreme will on Monday hear the bail plea filed by self- styled religious figure

The apex court, on November 21, refused to give him relief in connection with two rape cases registered against him.

Asaram had earlier knocked the doors of the apex seeking bail on health grounds.

The Government had earlier told the top division bench that the rape case registered against Asaram would very likely proceed in an expeditious manner, adding that the trial would be completed within six months so the bail should not be granted to him in the case.

The apex court had earlier this month sought the response of the Centre and five states on a plea seeking a (CBI) probe into the alleged of children through black magic and attacks on ten witnesses in rape cases.
