Finally, justice has prevailed even though it has taken five long years: the self-styled Godman Asaram Bapu, who was facing charges of raping a minor girl and has been since living within the confinements of the Jodhpur Central Jail, has finally been awarded life imprisonment by the Jodhpur Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe Court today.
Asaram Bapu was arrested back in 2013 when the parents of a 16-year-old girl from Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh filed a complaint of him allegedly raping their minor daughter.
Other charges that were slapped against him included: human trafficking, sexual crimes against children, wrongful confinement, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy.
With so many charges against him, it was obvious he would not walk away freely from this and hence this final verdict is welcome.
However, reaching to this verdict was anything but easy.
Being the most high profile case in which we are talking about threats to policemen, extreme media attention and the huge power play initiated by Asaram’s blind followers, there were many obstacles in the way.
Take a look at the following visuals to get a firm hand on why the Asaram rape case was one of the most sensitive cases in history and who actually are the heroes like top cop Ajay Pal Lamba who made sure that he doesn’t go unpunished:
