Speed News Desk | Updated on: 29 August 2016, 21:58 IST

The Allahabad High Court today directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to find Rahul Sachan, who was a prime witness in the rape case against self-styled godman Asaram Bapu.

According to a PTI report, Sachan went missing on 25 November, 2015.

The court said that it expected the CBI to conclude the investigation and file its report not later than six months from 29 August, if possible earlier.

Asaram is facing rape charge after a teenaged girl accused him of sexual assault at his ashram in Manai village near Jodhpur.

Following her complaint against Asaram, he was arrested by Jodhpur Police on 31 August, 2013 and has been in jail since then.
