CID team at Asaram’s ashram in search of Bapu’s son

Ahmedabad, Aug 13: A 20-member strong team of the Gujarat CID on Wednesday went to spiritual guru Asaram Bapu’s ashram in Ahmedabad in search of his son, Narayan Sai.

Asaram Bapu’s son was due to appear in court today in connection with the deaths of two students of a school run by the Asaram Bapu trust here.

The CID team had arrived at the ashram to probe whether the reports on occult practices being carried out at the premises were correct or not.

The CID may demand an arrest warrant against Narayan Sai in connection with the murders, in tomorrow’s hearing.

The CID summons followed frequent reports appearing in local dailies alleging Narayan Swami’s involvement in tantrik (occult) activities, though there has been no evidence connecting him to the deaths.

The two children went missing from the gurukul under mysterious circumstances in July. The bodies of the two children, Dipesh Praful Vaghela (10) and Abhishek Shantilal Vaghela (11), were later found from the Sabarmati riverbed near the Asaram’s ashram on the outskirts of the city on July 6. The deaths led to violent protests in Ahmedabad.

The father of one of the dead children also sat on an indefinite fast to protest against the incident.

Speculations of occult rituals are rife since the post-mortem examination report suggested that the internal organs of one of the boys were missing and that their heads were tonsured.
