Hindu Godman Asaram Bapu gets life term, other convicts get 20 years each in Rape Case

The court has sentenced Asaram to a life term in the rape case, while two other of his aides Shilpi and Sharad are given 20 years in jail each.
Asaram trust’s spokesperson Neelam Dubey reacted to the verdict against the self-styled godman. She said that the sentence was a big blow and a disappointment, adding that the legal team will decide upon the course of further action. She said that the trust will definitely move high court against the verdict.

According to CNN-News18 sources, the special court has started reading out its order in the case. The self-styled godman is expected to get maximum 10 years in prison, however, the defence has sought leniency citing his age and failing health.
