Jodhpur: A special duty magistrate in Jodhpur today sent self-styled godman Asaram Bapu to 14 days judicial custody, after police told the court that it had nothing more to question the godman.






A special isolated room has been set up inside Jodhpur central jail, to keep Asaram Bapu away from other jail inmates.

Soon after the court order, a cavalcade of policemen led by DCP Ajaypal Lamba took Asaram straight to Jodhpur jail.

Lawyers for Asaram filed a bail application, on which court is yet to take a decision.

A large number of supporters of Asaram Bapu gathered outside the court premises and shouted slogans against the police and media.

Jodhpur jail superintendent Rakesh Mohan told mediapersons that a blanket, bowl, a mug and a mat would be provided to Asaram bapu inside the jail.

He said, it was up to the jail administration to decide how the godman will be kept there.

"If we feel that his safety and security will not be affected, we might keep him along with other jail inmates", he added.
