Narayan Sai’s possible hideouts in Najafgarh, Rohini, Jaffarpur Kalan and Ridge Road were raided

A team of the Gujarat Police assisted by the Delhi Police raided controversial self-styled godman Asaram Bapu’s ashrams in the Capital on Tuesday. They were in search of his son Narayan Sai, who is facing charges of sexual assault in a case registered in Surat. .

Sources in the Delhi Police said that while intercepting Sai’s cell phone locations, the investigating sleuths traced the phone number of one of his followers somewhere in Delhi and suspecting that the phone could have been used by Sai, a team from Gujarat was dispatched. Here, the team was joined by the Delhi Police’s Crime Branch and it raided Sai’s possible hideouts in Najafgarh, Rohini, Jaffarpur Kalan and Ridge Road. However, Sai could not be found and the phone, too, was found switched off later in the day.

It is also learnt that there are strong possibilities that he may have slipped into Haryana from South-West Delhi.

Two sisters in their complaint to the police had alleged that the elder sister was sexually assaulted by Asaram Bapu for nine years, between 1997 and 2006 at his ashram, while the younger was sexually assaulted by Sai between 2002 and 2005 at the Surat ashram.
