The victim was a Class 12 student and she was a student at his Chhindwara ashram in Madhya Pradesh. According to the charge sheet reports reads that ‘One day the girl felt dizzy and her hostel warden Shilpi told her that she is under the influence of ‘bad souls’. Shilpi said to her that she will talk to Asaram on this issue. On 7 August, warden called at her home and told her parents about victims condition. Her parents came to her hostel and told them that she told to Bapu about their daughter condition. Shilpi told them that Asaram had asked her to bring her at his ashram. However, they were told that Bapu would be in Delhi on 12 August but, he was not there. Asaram was in Jodhpur and finally, they reached Manai village near Jodhpur on 14 August.’

The victim also told that Asaram aides took them to the hut of Bapu and on 15 August night, they again went to his kutiya. The 77-year-old godman talked to her parents and later, asked them to leave her with him and sit outside the gate.’
