MUMBAI: The Virar police have registered a case against Narayan Sai, the son of spiritual guru Asaram Bapu, on Friday, for forgery and criminal intimidation.
At present, 35-year-old Narayan lives at Sabarmati in Gujarat. No arrests have been made so far.
The case is three years old. The complainant, Mahendra Chawla, is an insurance advisor. He used to live at Asaram Bapu’s ashram in Virar between May 1998 and August 2005.
Chawla told the police that in July 2005, he along with other inmates had objected to Narayan’s activities at the ashram. Consequently, Narayan had allegedly forced him to sign on five blank documents.
“After receiving threats, I decided to leave the ashram,” Chawla told TOI. But when asked why it took him three years to file an FIR, Chawla could not come up with an answer.
The FIR also includes the names of two other men Kaushalya Thakur and Rajendra Singh who work with Narayan. Sections 323, 465, 468, 504, 506, 507 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code have been applied to him for forgery and criminal intimidation.
