Ahmedabad: Self-styled godman Asaram, whose police remand in connection with the sexual assault case lodged against him by a Surat-based girl, got over today, was taken back to Jodhpur by the SIT, which is conducting the probe.
“Asaram was sent to judicial custody after his police remand got over today. He was then taken to Sabarmati Central Jail from the court,” Asaram's lawyer B M Gupta said.
A senior police official said, “He was later taken back to Jodhpur.”
Asaram was lodged in a jail in Jodhpur since August this year in another sexual assault case.
The 72-year-old was brought to city last week on a transit remand from a court in Jodhpur and thereafter, quizzed extensively during the two batches of seven-day remand granted by a magisterial court in Gandhinagar.
