The Apex Court on Monday ordered the registration of a new First Information Report (FIR) against Asaram who allegedly faked his medical. In fact, the Supreme Court also imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on Asaram against a plea for bail on medical grounds. The plea said that his medical conditions are as such that it cannot be treated within Jaipur. Asaram is booked in the Jodhpur Central Jail on charges of sexually assaulting a minor girl.

Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar and Justice NV Ramana referred to a report by the AIIMS medical board which lead to the refusal of his bail plea. The AIIMS Sciences board of eight senior doctors had said the evaluation of his prostate ailment remained incomplete because of Asaram’s refusal to undergo required tests.

“We can’t overlook that the trial was unnecessarily prolonged and there were attacks on prosecution witnesses, two of whom have died,” the Supreme Court noted. “The instant plea is devoid of merit and hence dismissed,” the court said while refusing to modify its earlier order that had declined Asaram an interim bail.
