Victim’s father seeks narco test on Asaram

The father of the 16-year-old girl, allegedly sexually assaulted by Asaram Bapu, has demanded that a narco test be conducted on the self-styled godman.

Talking to reporters at his residence in neighbouring Shahjahanpur district on Tuesday night, the victim’s father expressed reservation over the support pouring in from the “blind followers” of 72-year-old Asaram Bapu and said that if they are so sure of his innocence why does the godman not face the polygraph and brain mapping tests.

“These tests would bring out the truth before the people and the world,” he said.

The girl’s father said that his family is prepared for every inquiry.

Stressing on a CBI inquiry, he said that those who are supporting Asaram should also demand a probe by the agency so that the truth could come out.
