Jaipur, Aug. 22: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot today said the rape charge against self-styled godman Asaram Bapu was being investigated by Jodhpur Police Commissioner, and added that appropriate action would be taken on the basis of ‘truth and facts’.
“I have spoken to Jodhpur Police Commissioner last night and told him to investigate the case at every level, and ensure action based on truth and facts,” he told media here.
“Jodhpur Police Commissioner and Superintendent of Police are tackling the case…let the process of probe be completed,” he added.
Gehlot asked the saints preaching religion or spirituality to maintain their best character and work in their limit as any bad message hurts and shocks their followers.
Asaram Bapu was yesterday booked on charges of forcing a 16-year-old girl into unnatural sex at a Jodhpur ashram a week ago. (ANI)
